Hello and Welcome!

My name’s Ellie, better known as Petalplum. I’m an artist & crafter, working primarily with natural fibres and an instinctive process. I share my slow & simple lifestyle, as well as my creative journey, and of course a fair share of mama-life!

I live in the rainforest, in Northern NSW, Australia with my 3 sweet crazy inspiring children, and my artistic husband, as well as a heap of native wildlife.

My bespoke online workshop shares my passions for creative making as well as slowing down in your everyday life. Check out The Creative Year here.
Also make sure you sign up to my newsletter list ~ I send Slow Creative Living tips, as well as updates on my workshops and events.
