How did ‘You Give Me Grace’ begin?
You Give Me Grace came to life shortly after my daughter was born. I needed a way to stay creative while being a stay at home mum. I would describe myself before as an Art Director, turned mum, turned sweat pants stylist.
I team up with Jo Kim Photography for all my styled shoots, as she brings a skill behind the camera that is well beyond mine.
Tell us a little about your background. Have you always been a product stylist?
No, I was a graphic designer for 5 years and then an Art Director for 4 when I fell pregnant with Grace. After becoming a mum I knew I was ready for a new challenge and started styling focusing on children’s products.
How would you describe your aesthetic in your own home?
How does this compare with the aesthetic you bring to your commercial styling work?
Before Grace I would have said my style at home was minimalistic black and white. How quickly that changed once Grace came along. Now our home has had a massive injection of colour, starting in her room and making its way down the hallway. Even our bedroom has a neon pink light and love heart vase hanging above our bed. (sorry hubby) My work style is would be described as colourful, quirky and fun and certainly emulates my home now.
Which designers, artists or creative people are you inspired by?
Kip and Co
Which colour combination is your go to?
Pink, yellow and blue. These colours may vary in shades from season to season but I find they always work well together.
And finally, everyone has a happy colour! What is yours?
Pink - It just makes me smile.
