Introducing our new ArtSHINE associate blogger… marie-nicole.

The ArtSHINE project is not just about coaching creative professionals, we’re also about creating a community of practice, and sharing the knowledge and the experiences that will help you create your own Business LifeStyle too.

So, starting next week, we’ll be posting a monthly blog sharing Marie-Nicole’s journey and how she’s made, and is making, choices as an artist, and choices as a mother about her creative practice. Marie-Nicole will be blogging about the choices and decisions she’s made as a creative professional designing her own Business LifeStyle. Decisions that include moving with her family to live on a farm, and doing what she loves to do; design and create beautiful homewares for everyday living.

Marie Nicole will contribute her articles on the last Thursday of every month commencing on 29 September 2011.

One of the early stages of the ArtSHINE  coaching program is where we encourage you to set at least one personal goal around your Business LifeStyle.

That’s why we’ve been seeking an Artist who’s keen to share some of those goal setting experiences, and their Business LifeStyle journey, with the ArtSHINE community.

You may remember we featured Marie Nicole in an ArtSHINE Close Up interview last year. To view the interview click below link:

Here at ArtSHINE we’ve worked with Marie-Nicole during the earliest stages of her design and realisation of her creative practice and we’ve seen how she’s created a wonderful Business LifeStyle for both herself, and her family.

We’re so inspired by Marie-Nicole, and we’re so grateful to her for her willingness to share that journey with us, and the ArtSHINE community.

Here is a little bit more about Marie-nicole;

In her previous life as a portrait photographer Marie-nicole strived to capture the beauty of living through her lens. These days as a mother of two with a passion for sustainability, Marie-Nicole focuses on handcrafting beautiful products for others to enjoy amidst their everyday activities. From hand printing her textile designs onto premium quality linen to be used for her range of homewares and accessories, to reviving old furniture destined for the rubbish pile and repurposing them to create functional works of art for everyday living, Marie-Nicole’s work can be enjoyed for a lifetime.
