I could design all day…
And I do! After learning about manifesting, I have created a life of creativity and self expression. I get lost in playing with imagery, whether that be with a physical creation or a digital artboard. I have been this way since as long as I can remember and have many memories creating all sorts in my childhood bedroom.
I’ve been a digital designer for 20 years, having taught myself as a teenager. My journey began by designing fan magazines and websites for my favourite bands in 1998 – when the internet was entering centre stage! Everything was very clunky, but I was obsessed and would spend hours waiting for the dial up connection to upload my designs. Shortly after, I started designing websites for local businesses and my focus shifted into the holistic field after my first awakening.
Intuitive art & products
Alongside my design business, I run The Happi Empire, designing self development journals, affirmation cards and other mindful tools. It started after those first awakening retreats and it organically grew from there. I feel my mission in life is to help support people to find out who they really are and offer holistic tools to navigate challenges in a holistic way, which is why I choose to only work with people who are doing this in their own special way.
I’ve painted and drawn all my life, but I must admit, I focus on work 99% of the time, so my personal art projects take a back seat. When I got pregnant in 2020, I stepped off the production wheel for the first time in years and started creating the range of art you see here. These images have been calling me for a while, so I’m very grateful to have had a bit of time to bring them to life. Partly an exercise in manifesting, partly an expression of how my soul feels.
