Having recently welcomed a son, Daisy Mae Fry is rethinking when and how to be a creative: “I live in a whole new world and time has to be organised”. Before she became a mum, she was hard at work creating unabashedly Northern soft sculptures via her brand, Daisy Mae Northern, from her dining room. Now, she’s taking on a day job doing social media for her dad’s stonemasonry company. Predicting her one-woman brand to return bigger and better, Daisy Mae sums up her practice simply as knowing “how to use a sewing machine and [having] good Photoshop skills”. Here, Daisy Mae talks bringing her brand to artists’ retreats and finding inspiration from interior design magazines.
