Making Space For New Creations

Notes From Another Land Fine Art Travel Photography Prints

We’ve lived in Australia, Ireland, England and Canada over the past decade and I feel like pieces of my heart are scattered around the world.

Over the summer, I decided to start going through my travel photos taken over the years and explore the process of making them into fine art prints.

I plan to print them locally here in Ottawa, Canada (our current home) to send out to others who are seeking to add a bit of colour–and perhaps adventure–to their home and/or work space walls.

A portion of sales will go to organizations which help others settle and find a home, when they are without one.

Creating From A Place Of Gratitude

This new project is focused on getting back in touch with my creative joy, to share a different perspective with you from a familiar place we’ve both been (or one that’s on your bucket list to visit someday!), while giving others access to opportunities in places where they may not have a support network or a physical home to return to.

We have been fortunate and privileged in that every time we moved countries, we’ve been able to access visas or work permits to grant us permission to search for work or study and remain in the country, which then enabled us to rent a place to live, demonstrate to the banks our personal character and start to put down roots in places where we didn’t have strong connections.

Not everyone we met had the same experiences as us and we are always looking to pay it forward wherever we are. We’ve typically done it through sharing resources, work references, giving positive reviews, volunteering and now this is another way for me to connect those dots.

You can follow my new account @notesfromanotherland on Instagram and visit the online shop section of my website for more details when the prints are ready to be released. I also plan to share all things art, design, creativity, travel (my happy place!) and expat related there.

My flexible work and entrepreneurship content can now be found on my new Babies, Business + Breakfast™ website, social media accounts and newsletter, as it’s grown from the seed of an idea into activism, events, community and its’ own brand.

I’m in the process of editing and adjusting my content and brand, as I focus on building the online shop and print studio over the coming months but will use this blog and my newsletter to keep you posted.

Thanks for reading and exploring with me!
