“I believe that all children should be given the freedom and opportunity to access the world of creativity that lies within them and can come to understand themselves and others through the practice of creative learning. I aim to provide a safe and nurturing space where children can channel and explore their self-expression and imagination. The creative and collaborative process allows children to develop fundamental life skills and gives them the confidence to carry these into the rest of their lives becoming well rounded, happier and healthier individuals and creating more cohesive communities.”
Stella Chen is also part of our team and has been working with us for 6 months. Stella is an up and coming emerging contemporary artist who has held exhibitions in Sydney and Hong Kong. Her work uses diverse mediums from paint to installations and digital media. She also uses dance and movement in her work. She is sensitive and empathetic and totally inspirational.

Our team is amazing! We also have to be very grateful for the young High School students who also help make the workshops flow nicely. All of the students have been participants in the Live Love Learn program previously and love to return to help us out.
