So by now you should be aware that I share my studio space with Rose Molteno from Molteno Creations. We’ve been working in the same space together since September of last year. It happened rather randomly, actually. Rose had told me earlier that year that she had rented a space from which to work, and a few months later I found myself walking into her studio and suggesting that I shoot my portraits from her space.

Thankfully she agreed and we’ve shared space ever since, taking the step of moving into a bigger, fancier studio earlier this year.

Today, Rose is my chosen Tuesday Chats With… interviewee because over the last 14 months, I’ve seen how she’s grown both personally and professionally. She’s enormously hard working, extremely ambitious and SO frikken creative, it can bring me to tears.

Although we are in different fields, that fact that we are both creatives, kind of fumbling our way through the business of business, we’re both travelling on similar paths. I find it super inspiring to observe how Rose is growing her brand and feel like I’m watching a future Fashion Super Star. It’s also great that we exchange ideas, offer advice, and basically lend each other a helping hand.

So, please meet the lovely Rose, and watch this space for her name in lights…
