Karen Wright- Founder LUNA FLEUR
Karen is the face behind Luna Fleur candles which was founded in 2015.
Also sporting the title of mum + mams (grandma), Karen has spent most of her life raising her daughters and working full time. Looking for an opportunity to embark on a creative venture later in life, Luna Fleur was created with the help of her children.
"All 3 of my girls have incredible creative talents, in design, film and styling, I'd like to think they got some of that from myself, (laughs) although I never embraced a creative career myself, so I felt like it was time in my life I persued something I enjoyed doing.
I consider myself 'house proud' and have always loved home decor, with this in mind the idea of handmade soy candles came to life. I knew it was something I could start small and from my own kitchen and then gradually manage as it develops."
Karen and her husband have been doing the market rounds from Sydney to Newcastle for the best part of 2015/16.
"We've become quite the marketeers! The early mornings are challenging but we love meeting all of the locals and the stall holders. We have made some great friends at some of our regular markets, it's that sense of community that is the best part, you meet people from all walks of life, it's really very social! "
Luna Fleur candles are all designed, individually handpoured, scented and packaged by Karen from her seaside home in coastal NSW.
You can purchase all of the Luna Fleur collection right and you can find Karen at several local markets and festivals throughout the year, all of which are updated on her facebook page.
