BUTLER creator Jessica Geddes (24) will be selling her creative wares at the Youth Week WA 2019 KickstART Market on Saturday.

More than 50 of WA’s most talented creators aged between 12 and 26 will be taking part in the April 13 market run by Propel Youth Arts WA and the Perth Makers Market.

The market will showcase handmade artisanal products, food, live busking, installations and exhibitions at the Perth Cultural Centre.

Geddes, a self-taught-artist, said it provided her with an opportunity to feel recognised for her work.

“I am excited to be able to share my passion for art through the KickstART Market,” she said.

“I love the idea that my art may brighten someone’s home or workplace.

“Having my artwork viewed or sold enables me to raise my profile within the local community.

“Events like the KickstART Market allow an emerging artist, like myself, to gain confidence and feel validated.

“Recieving constructive feedback would be beneficial for me to gauge what aspects of my work people like, so that I can further hone my skills towards being a better artist.”

The market will run from 10am to 4pm, at Perth Cultural Centre in Northbridge.
