Art healed my post natal depression

Hi I’m Alisa. I am 18 years old and recently graduated from Banora Point High School. I am currently working at a local cafe until I figure out what path I want to take career wise.

I’m always dreaming about fashion so in my spare time I’m thrifting for some unique pieces to rework and add to my overflowing wardrobe. DIYing accessories and jewellery are another one of my hobbies – my latest project being the rings made of spoons that I have now decorated my hands with.

During High School, Kay’s art space was my comfort zone – I am hoping that I can recreate that same safe space for the youth of our community. To guide them through the same journey I just went through and be like an older sister to them haha. I was lucky enough to have a few mentor type figures like Kay but didn’t really have someone around my age that were outside my close circle of friends and family that I could express my feelings too.

In a nutshell, that’s what I hope to offer here – to lend an ear, have a chat, listen to some good music and make some cool art.

Hello everyone, my name is Bindi :)

I am 18 years old and have just finished high school at Banora.

Art has always been a part of my life and sharing the love I have for creating with young adults is both an unbelievable opportunity and a great enjoyment.

The reason why I am here is to hopefully be a person that my younger self needed, and with a space like think purple and the inspiring kay helping me I am more than excited to get creative

A little bit about myself is that I used to competitively swim and was lucky enough to compete and medal at nationals. But now over a year has passed since I stopped due to the loss of passion.

I found with swimming that it has taught me lessons that I’ll cherish forever, and even when I stopped swimming that was probably the greatest lesson of all.

Right now I still have no clue on what path I want to go down, but I know for sure I love talking and connecting with young people (probably because I am giant kid myself) and creating art.

Kindest regards Bindi xox
