Emilie Wapnick

Hello. I'm a visual artist, designer, teacher and art print maker.

In 2018 I discovered 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.

This website is now the springboard to some of those pursuits.


Creative Background

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 animation and photography.

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

Unfortunately in 2018, after being diagnosed with a long-term health issue as well as experiencing the loss of family member, 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.

I'm still pursuing my art projects. For example you can read more about the Art of Age Project in this post and see it on Instagram.

However in the 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 to make beautiful content 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...
