Since I was a child I have always loved drawing and being creative. This lead me to a career in Graphic Design where I graduated from Newcastle University and then worked as a designer in Sydney, London and then São Paulo.
I spent almost 8 years living in the UK where I worked for two leading Design Groups in Oxford and London designing for many local and international clients. During this time I got married and then later moved to Brazil with my husband. In Brazil, my three beautiful children were born and I took time off to be a Mum whilst doing some casual freelancing which involved a lot of corporate design. I also kept myself busy being creative in a different way with @hollandcakes (a small business that I had in Brazil)
We moved to Australia at the beginning of 2018 and my creative journey continued to evolve. Becoming a Surface Pattern Designer has been such a wonderful step forward in my career and a great way to combine my love of creativity with a design purpose in mind.
