Hi there,

A little about me :)

I'm mum to two gorgeous kids + wife to my super human hubby, Jai.  I have been pursuing my love of interior design for a little over 10 years now. (wow that makes me feel old!)  Im a qualified Interior Designer with 4 years of formal design education under my belt + I have both my Diploma + Advanced Diploma in Interior Design.

I have lived a colourful life, having travelled around Australia many times + often feel like a cat with 9 lives. I really feel my free spirit has allowed me to have so many experiences in my life, so many lessons and opportunities have come my way + Im really so thank full for all of them.  

My design capabilities are wide, ranging from large scale commercial projects to smaller residential styling + concept development.  Staying updated + on point with all things 'design' is truely just a typical part of my day to day. Designing is definitely a healthy obsession I am proud to have + looking back I can see how I was hugely influenced through my travels to explore design + space.  I can work with many design styles but my favourites are Japandi, Boho, Scandi, Japanese, Mid Century Modern, Art Deco, Mountain Lodge Lux, Coastal - Hamptons, Industrial + Minimalist-Contemporary.

Embracing a life of holistic living is a path I began over 15 years ago. Through my own practice, I have deepened my understanding of the universe + how to enhance our energy + connection to source. I'm completely dedicated to staying connected and living a life of healthy mind, body + spirit.  I'm so pumped that Soul Shapes was born out of my desire to communicate the important relationship good design has with enhanced wellbeing. 

Living a life of peace + contentment is a beautiful gift that we owe to ourselves to create + Im so honoured to be able to use my skills as a designer to create spaces that elevate others in their own journey. I work closely with my clients over a coffee or a wine ;) , whether in person or online, it's all about digging deep to find their exact vision and design goals. I truely love creating unique spaces, tailored to my clients personality and lifestyle goals.  I look forward to working with you + bringing the magic to your next project!
