spring on a winters day

The last few weeks have been so stressful with the first lot of my spring design samples coming from my manufacturer all wrong. It has thrown my timeline and launch of website, but given me the opportunity to refine the collection and assert myself with the people I employ. It has not been easy surrendering my work the strangers to be replicated, but it had to happen one day. The recent turmoil has revealed an unforeseen reconciliation with my twin sister. We have always had an extremely close connection, but our sisterly bickering had hindered the business relationship. We are 25 now and we worry less about our egos, and this showed in a recent peaceful confrontation that has resulted into this sincere respect and love that I have only received out my closest of closet friendships. And as if her already unconditional love and support of me was enough, it has further confirmed my sense of self and worth. The feeling you get from inside your soul that speaks to your body through your stomach, you know, the gut feeling, that  your on the right path... insurmountable, as if it is this path, the path that leads you to the source

And through this, our Mum arrived unexpectedly. The last time the 3 of us were together was on our 21st birthday, so it was special - made only more by the fact that Saci works at the Peninsular Hot Springs where we spent 2 glorious days bathing, while the freezing temperatures dropped blissfully unaware around us...

First labels from manufacturer - and sewing the first one into a cardigan I made for Mum

When Mum saw this she reminisced of us as babies and insisted we roll it around woolies while we picked out dessert

talking to her baby twins - they didnt have twin seats in our day

it was 6 degrees on this night - warmer than the bathe the night before

Thank you Saci

Design | Content | Photography

Starting this journey into photography feels like catching up with an old friend – my trusty Canon camera, a gift from my filmmaker dad over a decade ago. While life kept me busy raising my wonderful daughters, Sahana and Dylana, I put photography on hold for bedtime stories. But now, as I dive into learning about product photography, my creativity sparks. Behind the lens, I'm not just snapping pictures; I'm capturing memories and stories, a talent I believe runs in the family. The classroom has become a safe space filled with inspiration, where my classmates and I cheer each other on. Here, my knack for styling fits right in, blending with the skills of others. And our teachers, full of wisdom and encouragement, make every click of the camera feel like a chance for something great.

Cooking live on TVSN with Peter Mason

  Cooking live on TV with Satvik Foods on TVSN was another thrilling experience, filled with flavourful "here's something I prepared earlier" dishes, nerves, and lots of fun! My sister joined me for the first time for an intro, and we shared our passion for Ayurvedic-inspired cooking with Peter Mason and our live audience. Thank you to everyone who tuned in and supported us on this exciting culinary journey!

Studio Portraits

First attempt at studio portraits inside the mArts precinct  Armed with professional equipment, I aim to unravel the personalities hidden within my subjects. The play of light and shadow bring their stories to life, capturing forever just a moment of each individual. In that environment, my subjects transform - the lens painting tales of expression
