My name is Matisse. I am a Journalist by education. A Campaigner by occupation. A Change-maker by choice. A Blonde Fijian by heritage. A Cyclone by personality. A Dreamer by soul. A Daughter, a Sister, a Mother, a Friend, a Wife, with 3 guitars, 2 kids & and 10 thousand vintage tee-shirts (thereabouts).

A Fierce Child of Paradise.

Little Disclaimer: I work for Greenpeace… and all 6ft of me, stands tall and proud behind the organisation’s values.  Independence. Creative confrontation. And a vision for a green and peaceful future. But this is my blog. This is a diary of my journey.  It doesn’t always represent the opinions of Greenpeace. After all, Greenpeace, like the world, is made up of lots of different people with lots of different opinions. And I’m just one of them.

This blog is part of my eternal quest, to make it a little easier, a little lighter, a little more fun, for us to find our purpose, on this wild & puzzling planet. So that we all may deliver a little piece of peace to the world, from our own wild & puzzling hearts.

We are a funny bunch.

I pray to God I do not define…. That one day we may eradicate everything from poverty, depression, greed, unsustainable development, animal cruelty to loneliness. And that we save our earth  … and the essence of ourselves. Peace by Piece.

“Heart and Earth are the same thing baby girl. It’s just how you rearrange the letters.”

    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
