About the finalist

St. Leonards on Sea, United Kingdom

My name is Michelle Kreussel. I live in St. Leonards-on-Sea on the south coast of England together with my husband, daughter Penelope and ginger tom cat Floyd. From my home studio I run my business, The Fox In The Attic. I enjoy drawing, painting, sewing and cooking. My dad always told my brother and I that we should do what we love in life and starting The Fox in the Attic took inspiration from this advice by attempting to make money by doing what I love. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to be a mum that can work from home looking after my baby and doing what I love. Since having Penelope, the ideas for toys definitely seem to come more easily to me. My products are mostly inspired by nature, animals and flora. One of my obsessions is painting with watercolours, and I decided to use this to create a range of cushions, toys and baby rattles. I thought the idea of a cactus baby rattle would work well, since real cacti are a little prickly and dangerous, and the contrast between that and a soft squishy cushion or a baby rattle seems to work really well.
