We are our own Free World Architects

Free World Architects is not only our shop but it's us.

I completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at the University of Southern Queensland in Australia back in 2004 and since then have fumbled my way through various unsatisfying jobs and travelled overseas and brought a little one into the world. None of my job options sadly, have been creative in any way shape or form. This seems to be an all too common thread amongst the us creative folk!

For the last two and a half years I've worked full time in business development and stayed functioningly sane (just) by running my own sterling silver jewelry business, at times equating to a 70hr+ work week. Sleep evaded me and the lack of creativity left me empty and craving more.
I've always thought that you can't wait for things to just happen or for good things to find you- you have to go get them, build them and make them happen. I'm a solutions person.

I've been unhappy for some time now as life as a single parent working full time doesn't allow for the hours in the day I wish to spend with my son. I want 24 of them not 3 or 4hrs a day!

So here we are, Free World Architects; architects of our own world.

Thank you for taking the time to read about us and I hope we may have inspired you to be your own free world architect too.
