ABOUT GSTC

Hello. I'm a visual artist and content creator.

When I'm not over at The Content Designer, I create botanically inspired portrait illustrations

You'll also find my thoughts, musings and things that inspire me to create on the blog.

My work

A LITTLE MORE DETAIL



I live in Brighton,  UK, with my 3 children and husband.

I’ve worked in social media, digital marketing and design for over 20 years.

During this time, whilst working and bringing up my 3 children, I kept drawing, illustrating and taught myself stop-motion animation and photography.

Cue 5 years ago, I started sharing my art, illustration and latterly, stop-motion animation work on my personal Instagram account, which has led to many exciting collaborations and commissions.

Unfortunately in 2018, after experiencing some personal difficulties, I realised life really is too short not to pursue our dreams.

This has meant embracing a more minimalist lifestyle and taking strides to make some of those dreams a reality.

In 2018 I discovered also the term Multipotentialite thanks to this Ted talk by Emilie Wapnick

This was my aha moment! My desire to follow different creative pursuits is simply down to the way I'm wired.

Other creative projects at the moment include the Art of Age Project which you can see on Instagram.

In my moments of soul searching, I realised I needed to give something of value to other people. But how? Well I particularly love teaching and since I have a creative background, it seemed like the obvious skill to share. Now I enjoy teaching others creative photography, stop-frame animation and how to make beautiful content for social media as The Content Designer.

I have many more pursuits, courses, and endeavours in the pipeline. As an occasional blogger I'll be sharing some of those adventures on the blog on this website.

In the meantime, I want to leave you with the quote below that changed my outlook on life completely. Go and pursue your dreams...
