Tell us a little bit about you…
I’m a prairie girl at heart, born in Manitoba, where I grew up spending summers on my grandparents’ dairy farm. Winters were spent attending school in Ottawa where my father’s government job eventually led us. After earning a Master’s degree in communications, I lived and travelled throughout Europe before settling down north of Belleville with my husband and two children. Together, we share a number of hobbies such as travelling, reading, hiking, going to the theatre, playing board games (Clue is the current family favourite!), helping out at our local church, and of course – milk painting!
Why did you start your business?
Chickadelic Salvage & Design was an online business initially, but we quickly realized that we craved interaction with our customers. Soon after, we extended the Chickadelic brand to include a bricks-and-mortar retail space where we can bring people together and inspire them to pursue their own creative passions.
Where do you find inspiration?
I’m inspired by simple things like good music, a great book, a cozy armchair, a furry companion, a child’s hug, a loved one’s kiss, a cloud-streaked sky… inspiration is everywhere!
What is your favorite thing to collect?
My favourite thing to collect is fond memories of time spent with my sweet friends and loved ones. Also, I seem to collect an inordinate amount of dust bunnies… particularly beneath and behind some of my favourite furniture pieces.
What is your favorite MMSMP color and why?
My favourite MMSMP colour right now is Lucketts Green, because it is the very essence of freshness!
