    Shelley Trbuhovich
    Co-founder/creative director/queen kahuna at Galerie Montmartre - Original Vintage Posters
    www.galmont.com.au / www.galeriemontmartre.blogspot.com

    What is your professional or training background?
    I started fulltime working life as a window dresser; then went into primary school teaching; then worked in the human resources department of a friend's international computer consultancy which took my partner and i to the u.s for 7 years....and ultimately led to us creating and running our own retail business

    What do you make, create or do?
    We source and sell vintage poster art, mainly french; both online and in our retail space in fitzroy

    What other creative areas would you like to explore as a side-project to your current work, or move into full-time?
    collaborate with artists and illustrators to create posters ...it's swimming around in my head a little, so nothing concrete; a new arm of the company highlighting more modern poster advertising images; using our retail space for more events; interior design

    What skills do you have that help you run your business, or what skills would you like to develop?
    i always keep an eye on the future picture of the company, what do i want galerie montmartre to look like? and then majority of the decisions i make stem from this ideal picture and philosophy i mentally carry around; stephan is a massive risk taker and he forges ahead, i tend to be the detailed one running around in the background, ensuring we're crossing all our t's. i like to plan and network; i like to see the 'trends' of the marketplace and set about working them into our company; i make the decisions as to who joins our team; i do the bank stuff!

    i definitely plan on formalising my interior decorating and styling/merchandising skills in the future....once our little blokes are in school.

    List five people, businesses or websites/blogs that keep you motivated and inspired, and why?
    only five??!!!

    businesses; dinosaur designs, T2, kikki k, leona edmiston - they stay true to their product, you know what to expect with every retail experience, great looking spaces
    blogs; (since you are making me choose....) the design files, seesaw designs, yellowtrace, dos family, the sartorialist, if the lampshade fits, daily imprint - you know what to expect with every post, but they always bring something new and interesting, i am constantly inspired by their commitment to their readers and creativity;

    interior mags and coffee table books; dumbofeather; frankie
