Hi, I’m Louise.

As a multi-passionate creative, I have spent my entire adult life avoiding traditional employment and trying to make a living off of my art. In various ways, and with various degrees of success.

Here, I talk about everything I've learned along the way: About writing and art making. About figuring yourself out, finding your creative passion, and practicing a craft. Dealing with perfectionism, fears, and overwhelm. Making a living on your creativity in sustainable ways. Staying sane and productive among stress and disctractions. And much, much more.
