My name is Amanda O’Bryan, I am a designer, illustrator, artist, author of the forthcoming book, ‘Daily Acts of Creativity’ 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. Investing in a creative vision for your life and/or business is an investment in yourself, your life and the lives of the people you love. By stepping into your creative self, you are tapping into your rich creative potential and it is available to you any time.
When you give yourself time and permission to discover and explore your natural gifts and talents you experience a sense of 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 more about how my life changed in this blog post > here.
Since then, Creative Queen Bees has grown a different pair of ‘Hive Flying’ wings and this website is a growing, changing, living manifestation dedicated to women living a happy, healthy and creative life built with love. What makes this even more exciting is that I am joined by my two sisters, Belle and Cate the blog and in creative collaboration on projects and products in our store.
I know we will meet along the journey. Until then, much love to you.
