About us

‘Hi, I am Belinda! I am a vibrant and creative 30 year old and I live in my colourful home surrounded by organic veg gardens, chooks, bees and my beloved dog. I love all things colour and make felt art in my home studio, sharing and selling it at local craft markets. I am also a singer, a cook, a lover of animals and nature, a bee keeper, and a keen permaculturalist. I am highly sociable and love a good laugh with friends in cafes. I am creating a business around my art, love of cooking and animals. I also happen to need support to achieve my vision around living independently, my work, friendships and home life.
