Bio The path that led her to this point
Ever since I was young I would always find ways to be creative, but I just had no idea how to make than into a career, as I wasn't an "Artist" so I fell into a job in customer service.
Then years later when I fell pregnant with James, I promised myself I would find something I absolutely loved to do. If I wasn't going to be with my child every day it needed to be worth it!
In 2008, I started to really see that there were so many crafty, creative people and ideas out there and that I might also be able to find a way to be crafty and creative and be paid for it but I still didn't know exactly what that was.
In 2009, my Husband and I went along to an Open Night for design college and I finally understood that the career I was searching for had a name - Graphic Design.
At last, a career I could be completely and utterly passionate about.
But I had to wait...I was pregnant with my second child, Ruby. In 2011 when Ruby was 1, I started study part-time and it was just wonderful!
Spending every moment thinking about, appreciating, learning, absorbing every possible form of design and then creating your own for others to appreciate is just incredible. I feel so very lucky!
On the day after graduation, I discovered I was pregnant again with my third child, Matthew!
The glorious thing about Design is that I was able to get back to work (from home) when Matthew was just 6 weeks old! All you need is a computer, pen, paper and your imagination!
