Hayley Nicole Crichton

   KnoxVan Events is very pleased to welcome Hayley Nicole Crichton of Happy Nomad Candles to our next episode of Curated and Curious. Hayley is a maker of many skills and talents. She has a background as an oil painter and sculptor and she has recently changed her focus, she now works designing artisan candles through her candle company, Happy Nomad Candles, and creates handcrafted masks for schools, people in the medical field, as well as custom orders. She has also been working on the next installment of her recycled clouds series.

   The pandemic has affected everyone differently and Hayley has been working hard to successfully shift her work to fit within the current times. Sticking by her belief of reducing waste and working with recycled materials we are excited to see what Hayley will do in the future.
