I chose Urban Road as my business name for a few reasons. I came up with "Road" first because to me art is a journey, my style and subject matter are always changing and evolving as I experiment with new techniques. The "Urban" part simply a reflection of my surroundings and where I draw my inspiration. Plus I thought they were catchy together and the domain name was available LOL.
What have you most enjoyed in your career so far?
It is so cool to make living doing something that I absolutely love!! Sounds simple but I just love what I do, and I love the flexibility it gives me to work around organising the kids & home stuff.
Have you had any major highlights, personal or business in the last few years?
Some of the highlights would have to be the people I have met and the opportunities I have received. Invitations to design & work on other projects...one about to launch next month. Very exciting!!!
What inspires or motivates you?
Everything!!! No seriously, I get asked this a lot. I am always looking for my next masterpiece, so it is always on my mind and everything has potential.
..and lastly tell me one thing about yourself that you love but has nothing to do with business.
I love date nights with my Hubby...I spend a lot of evenings working but every other Friday or Sat night (which ever one works) the kids go to Nanna's for a sleep over we go out for dinner & a movie (I love the movies) bit of a sci fi fan, also keen on the chic flicks (hubby's not though). And I love hanging out just the two of us drinking wine & SLEEPING IN!!
