About this store
Of course Diva 'Designaria' is a made up word, partially inspired by the name Diva in it's operatic sense. Split it into two parts ~ Design - meaning a pattern, or to plan or intend something in it's literal sense. Or more prosaically, a designer can be described as a person who imagines how something could be made and draws plans for it. Aria - meaning a song sung by one person in an opera. This can usually bring to mind the familiar saying "it ain't over until the fat lady sings...." For me, design is something that I tap into constantly, at work or play. When something has gone well, most people will have experienced a feeling of euphoria, whether they work with their hands or their head - or both of course. Combined with mental and emotional satisfaction on completing a task, the entire process of design is extremely rewarding, especially when everything starts to gel. The buzz generated by this gets ploughed back into the work, which is good for you as well as me! So - the mental music I make whilst I'm working is the most wonderful thing in the world to me. So - Diva Designaria? It means the place in my heart where design sings ~ NOT just for its supper ~ but also for joy in the creation of something special. We all deserve something special don't we?
