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.
