Three and a half years ago I was fortunate enough to meet and subsequently become friends with Genevieve Gibson. Mother to three daughters, wife and friend but more interestingly, she was a creative. She was not following one career path, much like me, and like some modern renaissance woman, showed me a version a mum that I could identify with.

I am thrilled to interview Genevieve as our Feature Creative for May and share with you all of the wonderful creative work she does.
