The Starving Artist came in to fruition during the summer of 2017.  As a newly graduated artist from the Queensland College of Art, she knew that she had to take the wheel & become the maker of her own destiny. 

During her first year, The Starving Artist blogged about anything & everything she could whilst working fulltime (overtime!) in a commercial kitchen. Her earlier work strived to put the spotlight on new & emerging artists within her own community & to provide introductory information about specialty coffee. These posts were to set up the foundation for what was to come in 2018. 

After working hard & building an engaged audience, intrigued with her determination for something more; The Starving Artist packed her bags & set off for South East Asia indefinitely. 

Combining her long-lasting love for photography & creative writing, The Starving Artist hopes to build a community of informed travelers who share her passion.

 In addition to this, she also aims to share some of the best specialty coffee shops around the world.  She believes no one should be without good coffee as it really makes getting out of bed on a holiday that much easier!
