I have always been creative, I even used to get asked to draw pictures for my school mates at primary school, so you could say I've always taken commissions!
But I haven't always used it to it's full potential. I pursued a career in theatre, but at some point lost my confidence, so I left to pursue an role in education, but the call was always there to draw. Creating a career as an artist however, can be tricky.
For me, I was the one person in my way holding myself back, feeling TOO small. I needed to get out of my own way!
That is why I created Create, Make & Shine, because if I felt like that then there must be other women out there like me who want to fully engage with their creativity and enrich their lives by using it.
I'm so happy you are here!
And if you are called to work with me, I can't wait to get started!
A soul journey
2017 taught me A LOT! It has been the year where I took action to do the things that I love, and to pushed myself out of my comfort zone to start to really achieve my full potential.
It was the year when I have stepped out of my shadow calling as a learning support assistant and embraced the fact that what I should be doing is teaching and mentoring others to fully embrace their creativity.
I found my voice and I'm going to use it.
As you can see from the main illustration on this page, my motto is 'Big Dreams Fly Freely.'
I am here to nurture your dreams and to encourage them. If you have dreams, then follow that whisper. That is your intuition telling you that you should be doing something else.
And don't panic, it doesn't have to happen straight away. My course is broken down into 3 MODULES that will take you from small beginnings to blooming and possibly pursuing a creative career, if that is one of your goals.
YOU get to decide and that's what I find so exciting.
