The road to Studio Palea wasn’t direct. It wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t mapped out from the beginning. But every choice I made, every challenge I faced and every fear I battled brought me to owning a business that feels true to me and makes me proud.
Though I began as a graphic designer simply interested in creating beautiful work, I eventually realised that I wanted bigger, more inspiring challenges. During my studies in International Fashion & Branding, I learned how to build brands with purpose and intention. Since then, I have worked for internationally known branding agencies and have been part of the Nike in-house design team for over three years. I have designed logos, identities and concepts for individuals and companies both large and small all over the world.
As much as I loved being a designer and valued the skills I’d developed, I felt a strong pull to forge my own path. A feeling of misalignment encouraged me to start listening to my intuition, learning about who I was and understanding what was important to me. I began thinking about what kind of life I wanted to lead, what success meant to me and what kind of impact I wanted to have on the world.
Journeying within allowed me to understand the importance of personal and professional alignment; it helped me discover my purpose and realise I want to help others do the same. I wanted to guide them in understanding who they are and building a life and business that honours their essence. Thus, I trained as a Co-Active Coach, participated in Shirzad Chamines ‘Positive Intelligence’ coaching training and completed Yale University’s ‘The Science of Well-being’ course.
Creating harmony between who I am, what I do and the people I serve has been the core of Studio Palea ever since. It was born of my journey, experience and knowledge. It is built upon the guidance I had and that I wish I had been given. At Studio Palea I dedicate all of my skills and experience to guide and support other business owners in the creation of their dream businesses — businesses with purpose and meaning, for them and for the world.
