What is the best part of what you do and why?
The best part of what I do is coming back to my creative self every day. Being able to make something with care and love, and then sharing that with others, is truly priceless and an honour.

What is your favourite component to your workspace and why?
We are actually in the midst of renovating our new space and couldn’t be more excited! We are partnering with another local brand (Milkjar Candle Co) to make a safe,womenlead, artistically cool space where we can work on making the things we love so much. It will be very open concept with pastel colouring throughout, but still maintaining the industrial factory vibe we are going for. Myfavourite component will be all the extra space to host workshops, charity events, and general workspace!
What advice would you give your younger self?
Don’t worry so much!! Although, I’m not sure I would listen. But I’ve learned that if you put in 100%, and have patience, things tend to work out in your favour. Iwould also tell my younger self that it is ok to make mistakes. In business, all of my mistakes have just led to a more efficient me in the long run!
