DREAM SISTER | RUBY KANNAVA
Our very first dream sister interview is with one of our all time favourite women Ruby Kannava. Ruby is a talented artist, jeweller, DJ and life long SISTER club member. We just launched our very first SISTER t-shirt with beautiful imagery created for us by Ruby. The drawing on the front is a nostalgic scene of her Yiayia's house in Cyprus where she spends her European summers. Falling asleep to waves, waking up and swimming with the women of her town, they wrap their hair up and bob along to keep afloat in the Mediterranean sea. :)
Full name: Ruby Melina Wolfe Kannava
What does work mean to you and what do you do?
I make stuff! Whether it's drawing, ceramics, or cooking; It's a pleasure thing. I went to art school and used to draw a lot, and after a bit of a hiatus have found a new love for silversmithing and jewellery making, which has been really exciting. I am also one half of Dior di Latte, a groovy DJ duo with the one and only Emma Cutri
