tell us about your background

After being in the corporate for far too many years to mention working for large international software companies in various areas such as Data Processing, Business Development and managing the ANZ Marketing Department. Thankfully I now have the opportunity to be more creative and hand-make beautiful candles.

tell us about what you create

Fragrant Candles by Maggie is a boutique candle store providing hand-poured soy wax candles, so each candle is unique. My product range consists of: Candle Jars, Travel Tins, Tea Lights, Reed Diffusers and more. We can provide candles for whatever the occasion – special gift for a friend or loved one, for yourself, weddings, promotions etc. We have a wide variety of fragrances to choose from and sure to have one you would love to own.

what made you start making your pieces?

As I now have the time and no stress from the corporate world I wanted to make candles that were:
1) harmless for the environment
2) beautifully fragrant
3) affordable for everyone
4) using the best ingredients

What is your inspiration/influences?

I have never really had the time to be creative before so now is my time to show that side of me.

What materials do you use?

I use the best quality 100% soy wax that is made from soy beans. This has the best fragrance throw and is used by professional candle makers around the world.

tell us about your creative process?

I have done a lot of research on candle making from overseas and locally. Sometimes I start by sketching out how a gift candle should look. My creative process is always a struggle however I am always looking at different ways of packaging to generate new ideas.

why did you choose in.cube8r?

I choose in.cube8r because its a place for local artists to show their wares in one place. They also have the clients that have been following their artists for many years. And its a great way to associate my products with other talented artists.

anything else you would like to add?

I am really looking forward to my time with in.cube8r and to my success with them.
