Rose Le Veque interview

What inspires you to keep making things?

"The people I surround myself with, my daughter, and knowing everyday that I am happy that I am able to do what I truly love."

What one piece of advice would you give to other makers?

"If you're just beginning don't give up. This is the hardest path you will ever take in your life, you will go through so many highs and lows and the hardest thing sometimes is to not give up. It's so much easier to live your life in someone else's dream, whether it's working a corporate job or living the 9 to 5 under someone else.

This is your chance! Be fearless! Be brave! And don't be afraid to say no. You've got this, but it won't be easy."

"You've got this, but it won't be easy..." — Rose Le Veque
