Creative Conversations

Do you want help designing your ultimate creative practice?

It might be taking the leap to transition your creative hobby into a full-time pursuit or rekindling your passion for your creative practice - I'm here to help! It doesn't matter what medium or artistic practice you favour, living a creative life is always a balancing act and finding a safe space to plot and plan the best actionable path forward is what Creative Conversations are all about. Think of me as the supportive and questioning collaborator helping to keep you accountable to your goals. This is for you if you're looking to: 

  • get the most out of your transition into or out of professional artistic practice

  • rekindle a positive relationship with your creativity

  • design a plan to bring your creative dream into reality

  • manage your time more efficiently 

  • successfully integrate your creative passions into your weekly routine 

  • find someone to hold you accountable to your creative goal

 CREATIVE Conversations Package

These 60 minute conversations can be ongoing, one-off or run for the length of a specific project depending on how much creative support you're looking for. Each session involves an individualised mix of reflection, goal setting, action planning and creative activities. 

I hold creative conversations on Fridays and Sundays every week at my office in Lilyfield and you can also find me on Skype. 

Cost: Face to face       – $90
Cost: Phone or Skype – $80


I was afraid that I’d go into the session and leave with more questions, but I am so thankful that I only left with real, attainable actions and goals. I am now putting these in place!  Jess continually listened and asked astute questions, as well as sometimes forcing me to ask myself difficult (but necessary) questions, pushing me to tackle assumed truths head-on, and consider additional directions I had previously disregarded.
