What makes Noosa feel like home?
Noosa Is a small place really. Running small businesses, you have the opportunity to meet lots of locals and repeat visitors. That presence of familiar faces and the small things, like going down for a coffee or going for a surf, and bumping into people who you know - that really makes this place feel like home. So for me it’s that sense of community.
What does community feel like to you?
Knowing the people around you. It’s that close knit environment that keeps all of us considerate in our interactions because we all have that sense of connection.
Did you always know you were going to be a creator?
I was always kind of creative but I didn’t immediately feel drawn to fine art, I was more drawn to writing. However, when I started studying design it’s something that I fell in love with immediately. The opportunity to be creative but also deliver both practical and aesthetically pleasing solutions - that challenge of discovering the balance between the two - is what really turned the lights on for me.
