Five facts about Beci Orpin

1. I lived with my mum and sister in an inner-city commune when I was young. It was a wild and fun way to grow up.
2. I don’t drive, but spend a lot of time on my bicycle.
3. My studio is in a warehouse in Brunswick, which I share with my husband Raph’s business, so it is also home to four food trucks (Beatbox Kitchen x 2 and Taco Truck x 2) and a donut shop (All Day Donuts). Sounds dangerous, but luckily I don’t really like donuts (tacos however…).
4. I would never consider myself an ‘artist’, more a designer who occasionally makes work for exhibitions.
5. I talk about the weather a lot. People think I’m making polite conversation, but I’m actually obsessed with weather and seasons. Bureau of Meteorology is always my most visited site / app.
