This was one of those projects that was exciting from day one. The team & business owner (amazing), the company (inspiring), the mural concept (spot on). One day filled with art, great conversations, great food and amazing people…it just doesn’t get any better.
Being able to create my ideas is the best thing in the world, the only thing that tops that is getting to meet truly amazing people from around the world.
Thank you Bolinda for being so inspiring and for bringing me out for an amazing day. ^^ Amazing Rebecca. She started Bolinda, is a great mom and one inspiring lady ♡^^^^ Art team for the day! My Aussie sis Lauren and my big sis Courtney ^^
^^ Love this quote in the Bolinda HQ^^
Always a treat to head back to Bondi to create more murals. And so happy I got to create three pieces for them (including the muscle arms I’ve been wanting to create for awhile)!

Had so much fun creating a custom pair of #WhatLiftsYou coloring book wings for The Sydney Writers Festival 😉 As you know this is not only my first coloring book for adults but this was my first time being a part of a Writers Festival. And what a fun week it was.
The festival is held on a pier (a few steps away from the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge). So blessed to be working with so many wonderful people down under, most of all my amazing publishing team at Affirm Press. At the festival I not only created a color in pair of #WhatLiftsYou wings but I also spoke on a panel talking about art and how I got to where I am now (amazing but holy s*** nerves). Photos below from the week, along with some of my favorite Sydney experiences.
^^ Open book #WhatLiftsYou wings ^^
^^ Love watching people step up interact and in this case color in my work^^
^^ Look at this line at The Sydney Writers Festival. Wishing every festival was held on such a beautiful pier like this^^
^^ The walk back to Pier One Hotel from Sydney Writers Festival^^
^^ Hands down one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at. Pier One Hotel thank you for the beautiful stay, you guys are so wonderful and made our stay so special ♡ ^^
First time in Hong Kong (and Asia for that matter) and first time at The Affordable Art Fair. A lot firsts for that week. More photos below
Such a beautiful room with one of the BEST views in Hong Kong at East Hotel ♡
Fun view at The Peak
^^ Affordable Art here we go ^^
They had a children’s coloring corner at the Fair and all I kept thinking was where the heck is the adult coloring section?? 😉
^^ Explored the Nan Lian Gardens for a few hours ^^ If you’re in Hong Kong definitely check out the Cat Market, a street full of beautiful antiques (a great spot to buy presents for family and friends)
