"I’ve learned that in order for me to be completely 100% interested in what I’m making I have to be innately passionate about what I’m creating. I make art for myself but with the goal of sharing it with the community. I’m deep into social justice and documenting the rich culture of New Orleans. I feel very blessed to live in such a beautiful city. New Orleans is a cradle of culture and I’m lucky that I get to live in it and document it."
Monique is one of our favorite makers and a most inspiring new friend! She's been working to spread love and good vibes through this beautiful, whole-hearted project she calls Flambeauxs. We're happy to share her candles and open approach to life!
