My partner and I started working for ourselves a few years ago now and it has been incredibly rewarding. A lot of it just happened organically, opportunities arose and we learnt never to say no.

Yes it’s hard work and yes that saying of ‘do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life’ kinda doesn’t apply most of the time. Of course we love our work but a lot of it is admin and who loves that?! Just let us create please! Plus you end up working every day because it fuels your soul (plus we’re addicted to work and if the jobs are there you just keep going!)

Pete’s business is Our Frames and Printing and mine is Graphic Design, Artist and Muralist. We worked our butts off and have finally managed to pack everything up and move interstate (from Victoria to Queensland) to continue working in the same field but now we’re also loving the lifestyle.

We’ll be sharing our new venture, from the move, our beach shack, our businesses and of the beautiful place we now call home: Cooee Bay.
