Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two dogs, often referred to as our “fur babies”. I have lived in Christchurch most of my life, although I have been fortunate to travel to many different countries around the globe. Japan is one of my most favourite places. I connected strongly with their culture, landscape, people, and especially the multi-storey stationery buildings!
I’m very close with my Mum, who is also very creative. I used to follow her around when I was young at many craft fairs and events (and still do these days). I absolutely love crafts, and over the years I have tried my hand at lots of different skills—such as; making my own jewellery, sewing clothes, and currently knitting! I like the idea of creating something tactile from raw materials, and it’s a great break from the screen for my eyes.
