As makers we are great believers in sharing the story of quality workmanship.
Join us as we launch our regular column interview showcasing artisans we admire, and chat about the drive behind their work intersecting with a creative lifestyle.
Today we welcome you to meet the talented local artist Kyah Wilson.
We’ve been very pleased to collaborate together this year on releasing some exclusive artworks by Kyah through our Artisan popups.
We are currently showcasing her new works "PRECEDENCE" and "WOODLANDS" (sold) in our Dubbo store.
How did the start of your brand develop?
My art was immediately well received when I created a Facebook page and an Instagram account. Social media has been a fantastic platform for many creatives and I have found that through these mediums if you stay true to yourself your brand develops naturally.
What is your dream project?
I tend to stay focused on the present, therefore I do not have a "big" dream project. I do however, envisage an art, food, photography and styling workshops out on a beautiful rural property in the distant future.
Do you enjoy having creative right over your own work every day?
I am a perfectionist with my work. I am my own worst critic and will not rest until I am happy with the piece I'm working on. However, because I work by myself, it is difficult to be your own judge.
What do you find most inhibits your work or projects?
Being a responsible parent, housework and the art of procratination are always inhibiting my work.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
The most enjoyable aspect to my work is that I do not classify it as work. I love what I do and I am grateful others do too.
Thank you to Kyah for this insight into her daily work and life.
