Creative Women

Director, Coach, Author – Gwen Gordon

Many of the women I share with you are people who inspire me. I stumbled across this week’s creative women when I was doing some research on the value of play for adults. Californian based Gwen Gordon lives a life of creativity, transformation and play. From designing Muppets earlier in her life to currently writing […]

Artistic Specialist Paint Finisher & Carer – Rebecca Neill

This week’s creative woman is one that I have ever met. In fact, I think the first real conversation we have had has been around this interview. I don’t even remember how Sydney based artist Rebecca and I connected, on Facebook I think,  it may have been through our common connections. I enjoyed her posts […]

Artist – Alicia Douglas

My grandfather came to Australia from Scotland, my father played the bagpipes and as child I learnt highland dancing. While I never had the chance to […]

Yarnbomber – Jane Balke Anderson

This week I am interviewing Redfern based fibre artist and designer, Jane Balke Andersen, AKA Queen Babs (named after her bunny)! I stumbled onto Jane’s work on the internet a few years ago. Being a textile artist, and someone who has worked in public art, I loved her colourful installations. They not only brighten the […]
