I’m Angie, London based, Irish born, mum of three and I’m passionate about giving me, you and the kids we love a #KickUpTheArts.
A fully fledged Digital Mum (I’m a freelance Social Media Manager), I discovered during my training that my main passion is the actual arts rather than the darker arts of twitter, instagram, facebook and the like (although I am a sucker for a well planned social media campaign and am available for freelance work…).
As a mum of three, I’m gonna be honest and say that I have struggled with motherhood and the implications it’s had on my career. Pre-kids, I was a sidekick to rockstars, billionaires, CEOs and a future female presidential candidate (not that one). As a mother of one I ran my own business making gorgeous gifts for fancy stores and well heeled folk. When number 2 came along I put the biz to bed and went to work for an international development charity. Then number 3 arrived and put paid to my full time work ambitions. I just couldn’t keep all the balls in the air.
So now I’m channeling my creative energies into raising my kids creatively, in the hope that a love and appreciation of the arts will help them in their adult lives. Picasso said “Every child is an artist, the challenge is how to remain artists when we grow up”. I couldn’t agree more.
