sketching-ponte-vecchio-florence-italy-Hi my name is Shantele and I am an artist, an environmental scientist, a world traveller, a blogger and a dreamer. I am on a journey to reconnect with my creativity and I hope to inspire others to pick up a paintbrush, a camera or do that thing in their heart that they have always wanted to do.

I blog about sketching, travelling, DIY, crafting, my art and the creative process.

My Journey so far

I stopped listening to my heart and threw myself into getting a job and ended up not using my creativity for a long time.

 “There are far far better things ahead than any we left behind.” CS Lewis

Throughout this time I travelled the world. During my travels, creativity started to rise back to the surface through urban sketching and travel journaling.

Now I am usually seen carrying a camera and a sketchbook to document and celebrate the everyday moments.

I savour the simple things in life. I am passionate about living more sustainably. I love photography, nature, travelling, art journaling, hiking, camping and all things hand made.
