Today we welcome another Fairy Tale Fair newbie, which we are super excited about- Caleigh-ill! We LOVE her creations and we think you will too! Find out more about her and her wonderful creations…
Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
I’m Caleigh Illerbrun (aka Caleigh-ill…). I’m originally from Canada, having moved over to the UK 6 years ago. And I do a lot of drawing/painting.. which I put onto various products. I also paint custom things, such as my ‘Russian Owls’.
How long have you been making your craft items?
I have been creating and making for all my life but only started to sell my creations properly upon being inspired by all the lovely crafty-ness going on in Brighton.
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it? And do you have some special festive items planned to sell?
By far my best selling is the ‘A Chase’ design on coasters. They are a limited edition of 50 sets total and I am quickly nearing the end of their run. View here.
I don’t normally do festive items, but this year I’m hoping to get some holiday gift tags featuring the ‘Nakkid Owls’ http://www.caleigh-ill.com/nakkidowls.html
What do you enjoy most about your craft?
I enjoy the process of creating the most. I feel that I would always be creating something no matter what, even if I did not have an outlet to sell my products through and even if my creations never saw the light of day.
I also enjoy seeing people’s reactions to my work at markets and fairs.
Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
I have done other markets in other cities, but Brighton is by far my favorite. The community of crafters and customers is the best of anywhere I’ve been.
My website has all my confirmed upcoming Markets this Christmas: http://www.caleigh-ill.com/
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?
I’m happy with the place I’m at right now with my artwork and products; there is of course always room for growth and I’d love to be in a position to not need a full time job.
Sum up what Christmas is to you in 5 words or less!:
Delicious food with family.
