My name is Matisse. Welcome to my little rainbow world, you excellent legends.

Bit about me … I am a Journalist by education. A funny stupid story-teller by practise and personality. A songwriter by dinner time. A terrible cook. A red wine enthusiast. A change-maker in the world of climate. A retired (failed) model. A mum of two. A friend to some fabulous people. A wife to a pretty cool beer-brewing islander guy. A blonde(ish) Fijian / Australian by heritage. I am a Cyclone. A Dreamer. An Aries. I own 3 guitars, 10 thousand vintage tee-shirts (thereabouts) & a unicorn named Greggles.

I own an ethical little coffee shop in Fiji [THE PROJECTS COLLECTIVE].

I side-hustle as a brand strategy consultant [WAYFARE BRANDHOUSE].

I also have a blog chit chatting about theย bits and pieces of my full, flawed, fierce & funny little world [A PIECE BY MATISSE].

“Great things come from knowing who you are, what you want to do with your fine-ass self, and why” – Matisseย 

Through SELLING epic ethical brands, helping BUILD epic ethical brands, and SHARING my (self-proclaimed) epic & (striving to be) ethical life… I hope to take a bit of the YAAAAAWNNN out of do-gooding. (It really can be such a drag.)

“Do a little good. Have a little giggle. Get down tonight.” – Also Matisse

Love, Laugh and Be A Force To Be Reckoned With Kids!

      Mr Cross!!

      How are you??? It has been a long time. I am great! Living in Sydney. Millie is good also-she’s still in Brisbane- she’s a Gym Manager now. Still sporty haha. How are the dogs?? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Matisse, We are still showing the dogs – off to Melbourne in November for the National Dachshund Show – we won t in Brissie in 2009. Havent been to aths for over twelve months. Joan fell and broke her hip three years a ago and had to have hip replacement which has restricted her a bit. Now that we are in the “70’s” we have had to slow down a bit.
    What are you doing with youself in Sydney, still modelling? I have listened to your songs and read your writings – looks like journalism has paid off for you.
    Look after yourself
