|Angela D’Alton :: crazy boss lady
Leeloo began as a way of combining my passion for Australian creativity with the I.T. skills gained as a corporate in a former life. Leeloo is however, so much more than a “job” to me.
I love working in this community, sharing good times and opportunities with all of the lovely designers and artists.
I love the thrill of attending the markets and meeting Leeloo customers face to face. I love having an outlet to provide the kind of customer service I would like to see.
I love the crazy organisation that goes into holding art exhibitions and now that I’ve begun styling work too?
I could not be happier.
Renee-Anne Baker :: executive of awesome
Not only is Renee-Anne the “wing-man” behind Leeloo, she is one half of popular online vintage boutique, twinset.com.au (also with Angela!).
Eco-living and hard-working, Renee-Anne also maintains her own very popular blog, renee-anne.com.au, where she muses on her favourite topics: art, love, food and life. Both she and her work have been featured in magazines such as Cleo, Elle Girl Korea, Peppermint, Happenstance and Slow Magazine.
You can also see some of the results of her artistic talent in magazines like real living and House & Garden where she assists with interiors styling as well as providing pretty illustrations.
With a fresh and forward-thinking perspective, Renee-Anne has years of experience in all forms of social media, and is always at the forefront of the change in media trends.

Leeloo :: inspirational mongrel
Starting out life in a kennel covered in the pee of her litter mates, life wasn’t looking good for this pup.
Not only was she hardly getting any food because she was the runt, the little that she was getting was making her sick because she was, as yet, undiagnosed as allergic to protein. How does a dog get allergic to protein? I hear you all say. It’s genetic, and yes, she has a special diet.
Leeloo requires approximately one hour of exercise per day, so that she may fit in the required 18 hours of sleep she needs, combined with protecting her backyard from, well, anything within 5 kilometres.
Leeloo does not like other dogs and she does not like cats, but she utterly loves humans and they all love her back.
