When I first began shooting and interviewing creative entrepreneurs for a university project in 2016, I had no idea I would love it as much as I did. I've wanted to do so much more with my 'Your Stories' project ever since, but apart from coming up with the cheesiest names for the website (and of course, life getting in the way), the right time just didn't crop up.

Along comes February 2019! Whilst taking time off from work, I found I had some extra time on my hands. Thankfully, this extra time resulted in all of my creative vibes finding their way back to me, and the next thing I knew - The Artisan Detour was here!

THE ARTISAN DETOUR

"A ROUTE AN ARTIST TAKES, DRIVEN BY AN INNER DESIRE AND PASSION"

- Yasmin Qureshi, founder

Aiming my new website at visual and written artists who are at the beginning of their creative journeys, I want to make The Artisan Detour a completely relatable website for readers and those I feature. I want them to feel encouraged rather than discouraged by the successes of those who have already made a name for themselves in their field. I want comparative thoughts like 'I'm not good enough' to be a thing of the past, replaced with inspiration and a can-do attitude for chasing their dream careers.

By donating to my Patreon page you will:
  • Allow me to travel to the artists, designers, photographers and writers I'll be featuring on The Artisan Detour in order to meet and shoot with them, bringing you an exclusive look into their creative spaces
  • Allow me attend arts events and galleries in order to discover new and emerging artists whose stories I'm sure you're going to want to read about.
  • Help me to work towards my goal of sourcing fresh and exciting artisans for The Artisan Detour's online shop, which I hope to launch in the near future.
