I know I’ve been out of the design scene over the past year… and many of my wonderful stores across Australia have begun contacting me to find out how I’m going and whats happening with Kahuna Bay’s range.
Well – basically I’ve taken some much needed time out to reflect and gather my creative energies again over the last year. I’ve also returned to my previous professional life as a communications manager. This has been a really good thing as I’ve moved back to the city and have been loving everything the city has to offer as well as being in a professional communications and strategy space again.
I think thats the thing about us as people- we are all many facets and not just “one thing” – for me that means I’m creative in many ways… Even though I’m tempted to put myself in a box of what or who I am – I am many things and choose to do much! Thats really what makes life exciting.
Stepping away from pushing myself to design and create has actually had my desired effect- I’m feeling more creative. And I’ve begun to start designing and decorating the way I did a decade ago just because I loved it… I’m starting to paint again and this is really a great creative outlet. You can still buy my artworks from SeaWeed and Sand stores in Sydney as well as a few other select galleries across Australia.
I won’t be exhibiting at the Melbourne show in August- but I might attend on the weekend to stay in the scene and catch up with some friends and colleagues. Its a wonderful place to stop and reflect… Have you done this in your life before?
Of course you can still shop online at Kahuna Bay- thanks to my wonderful mother who keeps sending out everyone’s orders! I’m going to use this blog to begin exploring my creativity and creative journey again. I think its great I’m living in a tropical city and will begin to approach beach and tropical style design and interiors from a city view point- one of which most of us busy working women are faced with.
I hope you enjoy my journey as well… if you love beach design you might enjoy our Facebook community- seach Kahuna Bay.
