MEET THE TEAM.

HELLO, I'M KIRSTY, THE DIRECTOR OF SECOND HOME. I STARTED SECOND HOME STUDIO + CAFE TO CELEBRATE AND ELEVATE THE CREATIVE COMMUNITY IN ABERDEEN.I'M NOT EXAGGERATING WHEN I SAY THAT OPENING THE SPACE HAS BEEN A DREAM COME TRUE. I'M FOREVER GRATEFUL FOR THE LOVE AND SUPPORT YOU LOVELY LOT SHOW TOWARDS SECOND HOME. 

I HAVE A BA IN FASHION COMMUNICATION FROM HERIOT WATT UNIVERSITY AND I'M AN ILLUSTRATOR. WHEN I'M NOT WORKING, I ENJOY TAKING PHOTOS ON 35MM, EATING FOOD COOKED BY SOMEONE ELSE, AND WALKING IN FORESTS, UP BIG HILLS, OR SWIMMING IN THE SEA. 

KIRSTY CAMERON, DIRECTOR

MARIANNE BAXTER, KITCHEN ASSISTANT

MARIANNE IS IN CHARGE OF OUR KITCHEN HERE AT SECOND HOME. SHE CREATES ALL OF OUR DELICIOUS DISHES AND CREATES SO MANY OF THE LITTLE TOUCHES THAT MAKE OUR DISHES SO SPECIAL - LIKE OUR AGED ELDERBERRY VINEGAR FOR OUR HOUSEMADE HUMMUS, OR OUR VERY OWN BUCKFAST JAM. 

WHEN MARIANNE ISN'T AT SECOND HOME, SHE CAN BE FOUND AT HOME WITH HER SON, BAKING SOMETHING DELICIOUS, OR MAKING GORGEOUS FIBRE NECKLACES, WHICH CAN BE BOUGHT AT SECOND HOME! 

@MARIANNE_BAXTER_
