Candace Liccione Biography
Creativity has been a life-long journey for this talented and artistic visionary. As the first-born daughter of Aleene Jackson, America's beloved "Mother of Crafting" and inventor of Aleene's Tacky Glue, Candace thrived in a creative environment. Working in her mother's family business as a young child, Candace remembers taking every class that was taught in her mother's store. Perhaps it was her experience of making every artificial flower imaginable at the time that blossomed into her love for nature, plants, herbs and teaching. As the first of five children, Candace remembers being involved in every aspect of her mother's flourishing company, from working in the retail store to sorting and answering the abundant mail received through television appearances to learning the now lost-art of varityping in the family's print shop.
The 1980s brought about a rebirth in Candace's artistry as she expressed her creativity through floral design and interiors. Through her own store, Candace Originals, her creative expertise expanded into imaginative window displays and stunning interior store displays. As the spiritual forerunner in her family, Candace discovered an interest in metaphysics and astrology in the early 1990s and studied medicinal herbalism with herbalist, Rosemary Gladstar. Driven by her intense interest in herbs, in 1995, Candace moved with her husband to Royersford, Pennsylvania and transplanted and transformed six-acres of her property into an herbal and garden sanctuary. The rebuilding and remodeling of a large storage/garage building became the home for her business, The Herbal Sanctuary, where garden guests could shop for medicinal herbs, potpourri, culinary herbs, aromatherapy or sign-up for one of Candace's many creative expression classes
