A Bit About Me…

Image by Enriched by Light Photography

My European heritage instilled in me a love of fashion from a young age. I’ve been illustrating fashion since I could hold a pencil in my hand. I still have files and files worth of fashion sketches from when I was little…it was something I always loved to do for family, friends and for a little bit of ‘me’ time.

It may come as a surprise to some of you then that I ended up studying Economics at University (I thought it was “the sensible thing to do”)! Cue quarter life crisis five years later when I realised that even though I enjoyed some aspects of my economic policy role, I wasn’t using my creative skill to inspire or help people like I’d always thought I’d do when I was young.

So a couple of years ago, I decided to illustrate on a more consistent basis and on a more widespread scale, and share what I loved doing with people like you. I also trained at the Australian Style Institute (ASI) to become a qualified Personal Stylist, where I learnt more about the psychology of fashion and the power that style has on women – on our confidence and well-being. My passion for inspiring others to look and feel their best – starting from within – also led me to complete mindfulness training with Monash University and the Perth Meditation Centre.

All of this knowledge and experience enables me to help illustrate content, and personally style women in a way that inspires them to unleash their inner goddess and shine with confidence! I created mindyourstyle as more than just a creative release, I wanted to encourage and inspire women all over the world, that includes you!

Yours in style + confidence,

Monika xx
