I’m Michelle.

Art Therapist, Educator, Writer, Artist, Mother & Wife.

Inner U is my third baby, behind my two children. A few years ago my husband and I (8 months pregnant!) along with our toddler, traveled up the east coast of Australia in a converted school bus – chasing our dream of living in paradise. We settled on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland and love everything the area has to offer- sunshine, beach, mountains, rainforests, wildlife, creative community, focus on healthy living …

I began my career as a Primary School Teacher in Melbourne. After experiencing the challenges of modern teaching and feeling frustrated that there was not enough time dedicated to student emotional wellbeing, I decided to take a break and follow my passion for art.

After rekindling my love for all things creative and realising its therapeutic benefits, I stumbled across Art Therapy. One phone call later I found myself sitting in an information session (hubby by my side) and was enrolled as an Art Therapy student the very next day!

I was in heaven- Art Therapy combines my vision for fostering resilient, self-assured and content children, with my love for creative expression.

Life does work in wonderful ways  ♥

Now that I am a mother of a 3 and 5 year old I’m even more concerned with educating children as a whole. Our days are filled with authentic learning, play and connection.

I love hearing from people with similar tales to tell and encourage you to contact me about any of my programs or products:
