As well as being a graphic designer, photographer, and writer, I’ve also dabbled in all sorts of arts and crafts. Creativity brings me lots of joy, and although creative non-fiction writing is my absolute favourite, most of the time I’m not too picky about which medium I use as long as I’m creating.

Sharing these feels pretty cringe, but I’m trying to embrace the multifaceted side of being a creative and show that you don’t have to be an expert at anything to be able to enjoy doing it.

I wouldn’t say I’m anywhere near an expert, but I’ve even made some money off my art over the years, including making signs, painting a boat or murals, and making birthday cards for people where I lived on a little beach in Cambodia; where there wasn’t even a postal service, let alone a newsagent to get cards or stamps. Most of these date back to those golden days.
