12 years ago I went to Ireland for the first time, we were only there 4 days but I knew I had to come back.
I’ve been making more time for beauty and joy, creating for the sake of it in 2021. Focusing on drawing and painting flowers, buds and plants from places I’ve lived (Brisbane > Kildare > Galway > London) as part of a ‘Waiting For Spring’ series.
A note about making connections: At home and abroad. Back in March 2010, I met my Irish husband in Canada before flying out to Australia a few months later.
The London Collection features original photography of popular city sights, cheerful doorways and rainbow rows of terraced homes taken during our time living in North West London, England, where we had our first son. Add a burst of colour and raise the vibration in your home, while contributing to providing a safe space for women and children in need. With every order, a portion goes toward supporting organizations with a mission to provide housing and support to those in transition.
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.

I thought I’d share a bit of reading material I’ve been using to help with the past five months I spent hibernating during one of Ottawa’s coldest winters in a while. A recent book I’ve been reading is called ‘Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art And Made History (In That Order)‘ by Bridget QuinnContinue reading “Choose Yourself First: Women Making Art (And History)”
Baby it’s cold outside. Take it from a girl who has experienced the effects of leaving summer in balmy Australia for Christmas in bitterly cold Canada, complete with a 70°C temperature difference: you’re going to want to pack a few things to save your face, hair and the rest of you from the frost! This one is a bit girlyContinue reading “NYC in a nutshell: Packing and prepping for winter in Manhattan”
Bright lights! Big city! New York is a feast for the eyes and I stayed right in the thick of it in Midtown Manhattan for Social Media Week NYC. As someone who’s grown up dreaming of working in New York at some point in my life, going back for more than 48 hours was a BIGContinue reading “NYC in a nutshell: Attractions, sightseeing and people watching”
