Where are you from?: Queenstown
What do you sell at the market?: Artwork, prints and stationery all designed and made in Queenstown.
Where have you come from? All the way from Bonnie Scotland.
Why did you choose to work in the medium you do?: My background is in Illustration and my main love is colour. I love experimenting with different mediums from paint and charcoal to digital illustration. I work as a freelance designer for the rest of the week so this is a great opportunity for me to create my own briefs and create things I love and hopefully other people will as well.
What do you love about the market?: Definitely the people. I love meeting new people and also like knowing where my art will end up.
Who is your biggest inspiration?: People that follow their dreams and take risks are my biggest inspiration. I take inspiration from the people I meet and try to learn something new and positive from every experience.
What's the one thing you can't live without?: Give me some red wine and a sketchbook and i’m a happy girl.
What has been your biggest adventure?: Travelling round the world on my own has been a great adventure although I still have plenty more to see. Also starting my own business has been a fantastic experience and will be a continuous journey.
