Introduction
I am a self-employed artist from the beautiful island of Tasmania, Australia. I work from home (or the back of the van or a cafe somewhere) running my design business Red Parka Designs and writing my blog Red Parka Diaries. I dream about changing the world but not quite sure how I'm going to do it yet. I love elephants and my best friend is a dog called Benny. And I wear a red parka. A lot.
