Tell us about yourself and what you do at the EPM...
Mango Licks is a Mornington Peninsula based business, operating since 2005. We now have revamped, re-energised, fresh stall set up, still
serving the same iconic Mango Licks and tropical drinks everyone loves. Most of our delicious products are Vegan, Sugar/Dairy & Gluten Free.
When did you first know you wanted to be creative?
So many to choose from... but an outstanding teenage moment would've been making our own outfits to go out. Most 'creative' outfit would be 3 of us making matching green gingham 'trapeze' dresses, with white tights that we took in turns to stand on Maude's (Jo's Nan) kitchen bench and decorate with green puff paint!!!!!
What inspires you to be creative?
Being creative just happens to me, it's something that I HAVE to do, when I get ideas I have to share them. I love being around creative people and the Peninsula is the perfect place!
