BEHINDTHEIVY was born out of a desire to celebrate and explore creativity.
This is a place where we can try to slow down and live a life of intention. Where we can share a love for seasonal and mindful living. It’s an antidote to the overwhelm of modern life.
Because I believe that creativity grounds us. It has the power to nourish the heart and soul, and we could all do with a little more of that!
I’m so happy that you’ve joined me here, behind the ivy. It’s a place near and dear to my heart and I hope it will help to encourage and inspire you. So pull up a chair, and let’s get creative…
I’m mixed British and Chinese, living by the beautiful coast in North East England with half of my heart in Singapore, and half in the countryside.
I’m a knitter, designer, and creator. I have too many houseplants (but there’s always room for one more!) and I dream of one day owning a smallholding full of alpacas, beehives and vegetable beds.
I love coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon and rum on weekends.
Feel free to drop me a line or join in on the discussions in the comments – I’m looking forward to getting to know you!
