Hi there! So glad you stopped by.

I will always be a Melbourne girl at heart. I miss Australia often, but right now I am living in Hamburg, Germany - one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I moved here with my beloved husband so we can follow our dreams together. Same time. Same place. Life doesn't get better than this! That is how Gus and Ollie was born :)

Living abroad, thinking in another language, with new happenings around each corner - heightens your senses in ways I never thought possible. I am constantly inspired by the every day and enjoy documenting our lives here...moment by moment. We are so lucky to live in Europe, where we explore new spaces and…

Living abroad, thinking in another language, with new happenings around each corner - heightens your senses in ways I never thought possible. I am constantly inspired by the every day and enjoy documenting our lives here...moment by moment. We are so lucky to live in Europe, where we explore new spaces and places often, then refuel every Summer back home....where our family and friends continue to welcome us back with open arms.

Traditionally trained in drawing, printmaking and bookbinding, soft toys were always something in the back of my mind. I consider each one thoughtfully and love nothing more than to see them find a loving home....

I love to collect all things vintage & retro, colourful and fun, so naturally each and every Sock Monkey or Monster I create, is very dear to my heart.

You'll find me at: Markets, Hardware Stores, Book Stores, Art Supply Stores & Anywhere they sell SOCKS! I love polka dots and grass between my toes. My favourite colour is green.
