About Deni Fowle, aka Mrs Chicken.
You may remember Deni from her beautiful online children’s store, Cheeky Chickies, which she opened in 2006 whilst on maternity leave with her first born, Amalia. This was Deni’s first step into the children’s product industry, and seemed to be a welcome change from her work as an adolescent psychologist within youth mental health and juvenile justice settings.
Deni’s new project, which she runs with her sister Loren Zoka, is called Free Range Living; an emporium of beautifully handcrafted Australian hand made and eco-friendly gifts, fashion and homewares. You can visit Deni and peruse her lovely collection online, or visit her on Facebook for all the latest news.
