What is your professional or training background?
Trained in Interior Design, art was always going to be part of my career, but after studying Small Business Management Hey Stella! was born and art and design became my life.
I paint, draw, rub, stick, assemble, scratch back and paint over - mostly on canvas or paper, sometimes on furniture or found objects. Whatever I do there is a richness of colour and texture and always a story in there somewhere. I create art that is never boring. I then find creative ways of displaying art within an interior environment or creating an environement that is an artwor within itself.
What other creative areas would you like to explore as a side-project to your current work, or move into full-time? I hope to one day win a big art prize; write a book; open a homewares store stocking my own line of designs; style for magazines; and I would love, love, love to work with some of Australia's best stylists like Sibella Court. Watch this space!
What skills do you have that help you run your business, or what skills would you like to develop?
Having previously grown several micro businesses into successful medium sized businesses combined with a good head for communication and sheer determination, I'm hopeful I will achieve everything on my career wish list. More experience with styling and bit of decent exposure would go a long way in boosting my confidence as well. I would jump at the chance to work under someone's wing and prove myself. I think with a bit of backing I would be unstoppable!
List five people, businesses or websites/blogs that keep you motivated and inspired, and why?
1. I am envious of the life and style of the stunning Sibella Court! Her work - be it her shop, her books, her designs - never cease to amaze and delight. She is somewhat of a superwoman in my eyes.
