Hello Lovely Soul…

Being a creative is a weird, wobbly, emotional rollercoaster of a career. I started (over)sharing my journey as a freelancer on Instagram. The nosey beings that humans are, I soon realised how much people resonated with my overactive brain. I needed a dumping ground for all those thoughts. What started off as creative updates over a newsletter, turned into a creative thoughts resource hub if you will. Now, the newsletter has been brought to Substack.

I never want my colourful little world of illustration to fool people into thinking that it’s as dreamy as it may appear, so I decided to always lead with honesty and share the real journey with my community.

What to expect…

It’s a wild mix of thoughts and musings that ultimately link back to creativity. I plan on sharing:

  • Navigating a creative career

  • Building authenticity in a crowded market

  • Arty tips, tricks, inspiration and helpful resources

  • Behind the scenes and all the in-betweens

I hope you’ll join me on this wibbly wobbly journey…
