WHAT’S MY DESIGN EXPERIENCE?

HOME LIFE & BEHIND
THE SCENES

Mama - I am the mother of two kids. Living with them is like living with puppies. Their own ever-creative and inventive approach to life inspires me and makes me laugh. They also need to be walked and fed several times a day so they don't destroy the furniture. They have their own personal entourage of people who follow their escapades as posted by me on Facebook.

Sometimes when I feel that I have not been working hard (enough) on the creative side of my own life, I remind myself that nurturing, supporting, and learning about these 2 amazing little creatures is an act of conceptual art every day.  

Partner- I am married to a man who is equally as creative as I am. Fortunately he works in a different field so we don't have to share studio space! My husband, DH Kong, is a professional fashion photographer - and yes, we have TONS of great pictures of our kids! I admire his talent and drive as well as his daily quest for a work-life/family-life balance.

Plus, he's pretty damn funny!

One More Thing - Did I forget to mention that I also front a punk-lite band called
Evonne Goolagong?
