DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN A SENTENCE.
I am a dreamer – where most people think dreams are just dreams, I see dreams co-exist with our realities, so if it’s thought about, I know it’s about to happen. I like to make the impossible possible.


YOUR MUSE PAST OR PRESENT.
Past. My Muse is one of my best friends who sadly passed over 10 years ago. Her name was Katherine. She always taught me to see the world through the eyes of a child. To always be present within the creative process and to have fun. I feel her presence around me. She is the source of: "Why not? Just do it…." and "Is it fun?” That’s what it’s all about and that’s why you’re here. 

REFLECTIONS FROM THE PAST YEAR.
The past year I have spent time in Ibiza and I had a lot of time to be with myself – and I discovered many things about myself. I never really had a moment to sit with myself and seek my why, or even see myself. It was quite a moment in time for me. I realised there is something fascinating when painting a picture. When it is created it becomes a gift to someone else’s existence. I realised that creativity is such a powerful thing. That something I can create, can mould or shape another person’s life in a positive way. And I think that’s really cool. 

 

WHAT DOES HOME MEAN TO YOU?
Home is the most important thing to me. It is a sanctuary to feel safe and it is the closest thing to me that is my own alignment. It is my alignment for all things beautiful and is a space to share with those I love. It is a space where I can bring birth to creativity and ideas. My life experiences are all present within a space and to come home is a reminder of everything incredible in my life. Home is happiness. 

FAVOURITE PLACE:
Ibiza. In the north. There is no place that has captured
my heart in such an unconditional way. I think I want to move there. 

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD SOFA.
I never grew up with sofas, believe it or not. I was raised on a boat for the first 15 years of my life. I think the SARAH ELLISON. Muse sofa is as big as my bedroom bunk was. But I can remember visiting a house in earlier years, literally diving into a sofa, and it feeling like a giant sea of comfort or something like a grizzly bear or something. I lay on it not knowing exactly what it was – I just knew it was awesome.
I think it was that sofa that made me really want to live in a house. 

 

IN 3 YEARS YOU WILL FIND ME...
In Ibiza – painting in a garden surrounded by plants and music. In 3 years I will probably have made the move and be creating the ultimate home to co-exist with all that is art. 


WHAT ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT TODAY?
I am so excited about finishing my current home in Newrybar – 15 minutes from Byron Bay in Australia. I have a few things to get done but I am so excited to start living (without builders) and being able to share moments in time in this space that has taken over 2 years to create. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and I can finally see it, and that is exciting. 


*Muse / a source of inspiration. 
**Muse’ings (sic) / a period of reflection or thought with SE. 
***Muse Sofa / a dynamic show stopper that will be the dramatic hero of any room. 
Perfect for moments of thought and reflection.
