This is such a strong, yet somehow delicate piece. It is striking from a distance, and only gets more gorgeous as you zoom in for a closer look. Thanks whimsymillieu!

About

Creating Happy Daily Objects

Hi, I am Jacqueline, originally from Malaysia and now based in a beautiful country town called Orange in Australia. Creativity has always played a major role in my life; as a kid, I drew and crafted a lot – I remember making cards with my mother to sell at the school fair, and also representing my school in many art competitions. Somehow, I ended up studying engineering at university and eventually became an engineer.

The urge to lead a creative life started bugging me incessantly and I went back to university and obtained a degree in design. It has certainly enabled me to look at the world with new eyes. During my design studies, my friends and I started making things to sell, and that has fueled my dreams to start my own business. After graduation, circumstances made me move from Sydney to the countryside, and I took that opportunity to start making my dream come true.

I started Whimsy Milieu in 2012 - I started off with jewellery, and have since gone on to create other accessories, home ware, and illustrations. I find that I cannot focus just on one thing – my heart is pulled into many different directions and I love working with different materials.

What I love most about making is the process - although I always feel intimidated before the start of a process, when I actually start the process, it is just exhilarating and also enlightening when I make mistakes and overcome them. I endeavour to insert whimsicality into all my products, of which some are more obvious and others subtler; in short, I strive to make products that will make people happy.

I love it that this job of spreading happiness doesn’t feel like work at all – as I wake up every day to do what I love and fall asleep at night thinking about more ideas for my business. I have also learnt a lot through this journey – not only in terms of creativity and business, but also about life and relationships. It is such a blessing that doing something I love also enables me to live a more meaningful life and to spend more time with my loved ones, wherever they may be in the world.

I hope that my creations will bring you as much happiness as they brought me!~
