Hello and welcome! I’m a mum, illustrator, artist, publishing manager and creative mentor. I work from home between the suburbs of Melbourne and Phillip Island.
Every day I aim to do the things that make my creative heart beat ….from painting to poetry, publishing, reading, discovering new artists, daydreaming and walking…and I share these everyday artistic adventures with you here and on Instagram .
I hope you enjoy my blog and most importantly that you’re also inspired to bring creativity to life.
