Home for me is a sacred place where I love being and my loved ones are by my side, it’s where we share beautiful, simple and intimate moments. It means freshly cooked food, hanging out around the fire, and a place to relax with nature close by.

Where do you call home?

Byron Bay is home for me, it feels like my soul belongs here. Brazil would be home before but just doesn't feel like home anymore.

What doeshomemean to you?

Home for me is a sacred place where I love being and my loved ones are by my side, it’s where we share beautiful, simple and intimate moments. It means freshly cooked food, hanging out around the fire, and a place to relax with nature close by.

What are the elements that help you transform a house into your home?

Texture, art, handmade objects, raw and organic materials are the key elements of creating a feeling of home into our house.

 

What creative projects find you most excited and energised?

My current art work, for me it’s always like that, I’m passionate for what I’m creating now - my latest collection gets me excited to wake up early in the morning, I can’t get enough of it, each individual sculptural piece and its details, how it feels when in my hands… I love all about it!

Which life and/or work projects are you most proud of?

My son, Loui is by far what I am most proud of, there's nothing more incredible than giving birth to a pure soul, bringing so much love and happiness to our family. I must mention that my partner, Aidan is by my side on this life project and he knows how to make each moment as magical as it can be.

Could you share with us some personal insights into a challenging time in your life?

The most challenging times in my life were the ones that taught me the most and when I’ve learned to appreciate life more and more - to enjoy each moment and to celebrate every single time that we have, as life can go by in a blink of eyes. My mum passed away when I was quite young, so, what else to say? Life is here and now - she is and always will be here in my heart. When looking back I celebrate the moments that we enjoyed together and I know that she’s and will be celebrating my life journey.

What did you learn about yourself throughout this challenge?

I’ve learned that we are connected in a much subtle level then what we can see with our eyes opened. And that to allow me to maintain this connection I need to stay still and let my mind calm down and then I am one with the universe.

What type of activities or rituals do you instill to help you remain Grounded?

I love moving my body it’s definitely my way of remaining Grounded, like going for a swim in the ocean, walking barefoot on the beach or in the bush, yoga is definitely one of my favourite rituals but sometimes just observing nature Is enough.

What is the best life advice you have been given?

“Life goes on” - Life is an energy flow we just need to allow it to be and flow with it, after all tomorrow is a new day!

Favourite travel destination for Grounding yourself:

I find hard to pick a favourite destination so I will say Tasmania as a whole, it’s the place to go and feel truly grounded. There are so many beautiful places and depending on the weather they will look and feel completely different. Brunny Island, Eddystone point, Ansons bay, the lakes are a must when in Tassie.

One city must-do travel tip:

A must go to for me is Peninsula de Marau, Bahia - Brazil, it’s a true paradise with natural swimming pools, surrounded by corals, crystal clear water, white sand, infinite coconut trees and the beaches are almost deserted. Without mentioning the vibe that the locals create and the food… I can't wait to go back there!
