Hi, I’m a creative artist in all aspects of my life, and love innovating, designing and crafting. In my working career, I’ve been a blogger, social media manager, graphic/web designer, communications manager and internationally published poet. My hobbies are numerous and still breeding like rabbits – I like lapidary (gemstone polishing and faceting), reading, writing, crochet, beading, home decorating, jewellery making and upcycling.

My dream is to travel the world (so far, I’ve only managed a few places like Malaysia, Fiji and Tasmania) and eat lots of great food!

I look forward to contributing useful information in my hubs and hope you enjoy reading them. I hail from Melbourne, Australia and I like to write about new things I've discovered, useful tips I can't live without and obscure fascinations I’ve explored. I’ve been previously published in hundreds of places, including The Big Issue, Going Down Swinging, Cordite, LINQ, Poetrix, Dooyoo.co.uk, Empire Times and Stylus.

Cheers x
