I am an Australian artist, surface pattern designer, educator, and coach.
I love helping people break through limiting beliefs and reprogram their minds to become the thriving creatives that they aspire to be.
However, I soon realized that in order to achieve true success, I needed to embark on a deeper journey. I had to confront the limiting beliefs that were holding me back from reaching my full potential.
I got started as a creative way back in the year 2000 after working in musical theatre for a number of years (backstage not onstage....I'm too much of an introvert!) but I knew I needed to pursue something that was more creative. I somehow stumbled across surface pattern design (no Instagram back then) and LOVED it!
For the next ten years, I immersed myself in the industry as a surface pattern designer, honing my skills and expertise. This eventually led me to a fulfilling role as a university instructor, teaching surface pattern design, while also building my own thriving design practice.
Recognizing the value of merging my teaching and design expertise, I founded Pattern and Design—a culmination of my passions and experiences in the field.
Witnessing the transformative power of rewiring the mind, I felt compelled to share this knowledge with fellow creatives, enabling them to unlock their true potential and experience profound growth not only in their artistic endeavours but also in all aspects of their lives.
Drawing from my experience coaching surface pattern design students, I recognised the common hurdles they faced due to similar limiting beliefs. It became evident that there was a void in the market, with no comprehensive solution available to empower creatives on a deep level and facilitate their path to success.
Motivated by this realisation, I endeavoured to develop a simple and practical approach, incorporating science-based tools and processes that yield remarkable results, ensuring every creative can thrive and flourish. My goal is to provide a supportive and transformative journey that equips creatives with the mindset, skills, and strategies needed to overcome their obstacles and create a thriving creative business from within.
Together, we will navigate the challenges, break free from limitations, and unleash your true creative potential.
