Tell us something about
yourself? I am
26 years old and I love being creative. I first got the idea to make dog coats
when I couldn’t find one long enough for my pup. It all escalated from there
really and here we are!
What are your
sources of inspiration? My Miniature Dachshund named Slinky. She is the
most amazing friend and she inspires me to create unique and colourful pieces
which reflects her personality perfectly.
Where and when
did you learn your craft? Who taught you? I
took sewing classes in high school, and then a few years back took lessons once
a week for about 3 months. I have a very logical mind so I am mostly able to
look at something and figure out (with some trial and error) how to make it.
Aside from your craft, what else do you enjoy doing? I am a caver at heart. I spend the majority
of my spare time crawling around in caves, scaling tall pitches and out in the
bush. In the warmer weather I love to take Slinky paddle boarding around Sydney
and spend time at the park and beach with her.
What piece of advice can you give
to other artists? Never give up. Do it because you love it and
never be concerned about what other people think!
What are your plans for the future? I would love to grow my little shop and
introduce new and exciting products! People love to dress up, so why not dogs
The Happy Sausage will be at the Dreamers Market on Nov. 21, Riverside Theatres, Parramatta.
My passion and mission is to elevate others
through assisting them to connect with themselves and those they love by providing
them with a product that is uplifting and nourishing.
What are your sources of inspiration?
My inspiration came from the time
I spent as a life coach. So many people are looking for a deeper connection
with themselves and the person they love. I have very strong values for only
using natural ingredients so by bundling these two passions – all natural
products, and my love and understanding for connection, I have developed our
Moisturising and Massage Candles.
Where and when did you learn your craft? Who taught you?
The craft is self-taught and developed with a clear vision
in mind of what the product was to be.
Aside from your craft, what else do you enjoy
doing? My passion is to help others love themselves at a deeper level. I love
to learn more about the process to do this and then teach others my learnt
knowledge. I also love spending time with my love, my husband.
of advise can you give to other artists?
Whatever it is that you
do, ensure it is aligned with your values and that way you will always be
inspired to continue.
What are your plans for the future?
are to continue to expand our range of natural products that will provide
people with ways to love themselves more.
Elevate Naturally will be at the Dreamers Market on November 21, 2015. Riverside Theaters. Parramatta.

Tell me something about yourself? Every morning when I wake up, I feel blessed to live in such a great country and make a living of my art and my jewellery…
What are your sources of inspiration? My main source of inspiration is women. I am often touched by the way they move and their creativity to stay unique. Little details that catch my eyes and often lead me to use it in my work. Nature is also very important in my art. I live in the Royal National Park, facing the bay and surrounded by gum trees. For example, the way the leaves move in the wind inspired my collection SLENDER NATIVE. The light in the water inspired my 1st cuff DOUCE ROCAILLE. And of course, I spend a lot of time exploring the never-ending richness of Aboriginal work. Every day a new occasion to be amazed and inspired. I am very proud to have the license to work with such generous artists. And it is for me a great opportunity to build bridges between cultures. And as I always say, Art is universal.
Where and when did you learn your craft? Who taught you? I learned to masterize the painting techniques while preparing Les Beaux-Arts in Paris. And a few years later, I learned to play with other techniques and materials at Arts-Et-Metiers school in Paris as well. But I have to say that once this achieved, the only way to improve is to push further the limits of your art: work and try.
Aside from your craft, what else do you enjoy doing? Markets of course! And welcoming people in my workshop. I meet wonderful people. All very different. I am very proud to have customers form 7 to 77, form all nationalities, all kinds of women. And now men with my cufflinks. Some of them ask for customization. Can be challenging sometimes but this is another opportunity to try… Apart from that, spending time with my children is a real source of simple pleasure.
What piece of advise can you give to other artists? Never get Impossible for an answer, and have fun is the master key. If you enjoy what you do, people will enjoy seeing your work.
What are your plans for the future? At the moment, I am back from 3 weeks in Yuendemu -4 hours from Alice Springs- where I spent a few weeks with Warlukurlangu artists. I met beautiful artists so stay tuned! I learn to enjoy the moment and make the best of it… Carpe diem.
Visit Mo Resin at the Dreamers Market on Saturday, July 18th.
