Meet the Team!

Who Are We?

Made On The Left is run by a devoted committee of independent designers on a voluntary basis. Our official title is “The Board of Made on the Left Inc.” – but we like “The Team” much better…

Kylie MarieKylie

Position : Chairperson

Kylie has been creating unique jewellery pieces for around 25 years, finding inspiration everywhere – from a flower or bug in the garden, to a grand Tudor costume. Kylie is often found hunched over her work table (surrounded by her Maine Coon cats), working on several different projects at once. Entirely self taught, Kylie has progressed from running her own market stall, to being a featured jewellery designer at a major Perth fashion design showcase.

 

Jacquie (Co-Founder)

Position : Web Guru

Jacquie is an artist. She has a frantic approach to craft; often flinging herself between falling to pieces over the stress and producing fabulous functional designs. Jacquie is back at MOTL after an 12 month break. She’s the perfect person to talk to about business plans, angel investing and how to cope when wholesalers are mean to you.

 

Nicole

Position : Treasurer & Graphics Guru

Nicole studied design and illustration and after working in graphic design for many years, wanted to get back to making things with her hands after spending so much time on a computer. Ever since developing and exploring her interests in printmaking, sewing, laser cutting, drawing cute animals, felting, photography, vintage children’s books, fabrics, paper (and many more), Nicole has been unstoppable! She is currently focusing on developing her label Tall Rabbit and spreading a little bit of cute throughout the world.
