My name is Amanda O’Bryan, I am an artist, illustrator, designer and founder of Creative Queen Bees. My truest desire is to share my passion for creativity, to inspire, connect and support women to live happy, healthy, creative lives they love.
I believe personal creativity is an essential life-force for creating purpose with meaning in our lives. Fulfilling a creative vision for your life and/or business offers exploration, discovery and expression. By stepping into our creative self we experience wellbeing, self-love, self expression, imagination, adventure, inspiration, insight, fun, freedom and growth.
I started Creative Queen Bees back in 2012 as a full service creative studio specialising in award winning brand strategy, brand design, graphic and web. That all changed after I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in 2017.
You can read all about my why and my creative life in this blog post > here.
Over the past year Creative Queen Bees has grown her ‘Hive Flying’ wings and is now a brand, blog, online art space and creative studio dedicated to women living a happy, healthy and creative life.
What makes this even more exciting is that I am joined by two of my creative sisters, Belle and Cate, who join me on the blog and in our online art space.

WE ARE ON A MISSION
We are guessing you have landed on Creative Queen Bees because you are deeply curious, a seeker, dreamer, a hive flyer with a desire to make, shape, design and live a fulfilling life – we do too!
The problem is most of us live in a world that hustles. Creativity is the antithesis of hustle. In our strung out, stressed out lives, most of us are searching for some peace, meaning with purpose. When women connect with their own unique, personal creativity it helps us find a way back to our true selves. We invite you to come along with us, connect with your creativity and in the process set your Hive Flying Creative Queen Bees into full flight.
If you are reading this, you probably already know women are magnificent and magical creatives. Our job is not to convince you of that, but to spark your curiosity and ignite a passion that connects you with your creativity.
We are all born with the intrinsic characteristics of creativity. Creativity is sown into the fabric of who we are as human beings, and more importantly as women. We all possess the capacity for free-thinking, feeling, intuiting and experiencing the world in our own unique and magnificent way. As women, we have been creating, innovating, crafting and designing our lives and our families lives for centuries. Creativity is our heritage and we have the ability to create, shape and paint our lives into our own masterpiece.
