I’m a multi-creative based in Hamilton, south-west Victoria, Australia.
Whether I have my hands in clay, fingers poised at a keyboard to write, or focusing the lens of my camera, each day I am compelled to create. It’s in my blood.
I’m a farm girl, from a bustling blended family of six kids (my parents are superstars). I’m Geelong (VIC) born-and-bred, but my family moved to Hamilton (south-west VIC) when I was 11, so they are both home to me. After a brief stint in Queensland from end of 2014 to 2016, I missed family and seasons, so traded palm trees for parkas and returned to Victoria. After living in Geelong again for three years, I craved the country lifestyle and space. In coming home, I found love, peace, and my creative spark again. I live with my partner, Haavard, and our two fur babies, Piper (my two year-old German Shorthair Pointer X) and Maverick (his 6-month-old Border Collie pup).
My ‘career’ is an ever-evolving enigma! I’m have been a singer-songwriter for as long as I can remember – it was supposed to be my career, but nowadays just a hobby that makes me happy. I originally majored in Film & Television and Drama at The University of Queensland for a year, but it wasn’t for me. I completed my Bachelor of Arts (Professional and Creative Writing) with Distinction at Deakin University last year. I gained invaluable communications and marketing experience through internships and my degree, and social media and online marketing has since become one of my passions.
After graduating and moving home last year, I was a journalist for the local newspaper. Writing for the rural section was my absolute favourite, alongside features – but news writing just didn’t click with me. It was amazing experience, but I parted ways with that role during the global pandemic in mid-2020. I am now working full-time with my mum (creative extraordinaire!) Sarah Hope, in our ceramics and atelier business, Hope & Co. (the parent business to my small business, Georgina Bee). I have also been undertaking my Honours (specialising in small and self-publishing) during this time.
In June 2020 I jumped on board with not-for-profit Rural Women’s Day alongside its founder, Jackie Elliot – where we conceptualised and developed the inaugural Rural Women’s Day Magazine together. In my role as Editor of the magazine, and writing several stories, I connected with some incredible rural and regional women. I am passionate about supporting this incredible network we have, and helping those in business or pursuing creative ventures.
