Making Space For New Creations

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.

The reason why I want to empower women

You may remember I have been working on a startup concept (including a book)* for women since becoming pregnant and having my son abroad in the UK. I was freelancing away, growing a baby and waddling along the streets of North West London, happily posting Instagram snaps of flowers in winter, coloured doorways, cute bikesContinue reading “The reason why I want to empower women”
