Tell me how and when everything started.
I have always loved fashion and art so combining the two was the perfect marriage for me. I believe style extends beyond just what we wear…. it is also what we surround ourselves with and our environment. By creating fashion-inspired artworks it is my aim to bring a splash of bold, vibrant style into your home or office space. And for my pieces to inspire a way of living glamorously {with passion, purpose and poise}.

I started publishing and selling my pieces through my website caragray.com in 2012 and have been delighted with the response.

When did you first know that you wanted to be a business owner?
Having been Head Designer for a digital advertising agency for many years, I knew I wanted the freedom of expression to have the final say creatively on every project. I also had a specific vision of how I wanted my company to be and what I wanted my life to look like.

Where do you get your inspiration from?
Vintage fashion photography; old magazine covers; stylish leading ladies; beautiful interiors – I have a love of all things timeless, elegant and beautiful.

What advice would you give someone considering a similar path?
Find your own creative style as you and your artwork are completely unique.

What makes your business unique?
I am currently in the process of recreating my website with my mission being to ‘create an inspiring and unique fashion browsing experience’. I want to inspire a way of living that extends to art, fashion, beauty and style. Quality customer service is also a priority for me. I like to ensure my clients are happy with their pieces and keep in touch with them after they have shopped my collections.

How would you describe your personal style?
Having a 6 month old, I am currently in the process of ‘rediscovering’ my own personal style post-pregnancy. I want my style to be clean, elegant and unique. Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Diane Kruger, Sofia Coppola and Olivia Palermo – are just a few of the women I admire for their exquisite style.

What’s next for your company?
I have just launched several poster prints of my artworks as an easily accessible way to brighten up a bare wall. Making my pieces a little more accessible, I hope to have my artworks hanging in more and more living and work spaces around the world. My posters are available from www.saatchionline.com/caragray
