After working out of my children’s playroom for years, I’ve opened a Monkey & Mum studio in Brisbane’s bustling inner city’s West End suburb, which features a workspace, shop, and chill out space for my customers and their children.
I’m as excited as a kid in a candy store!
It’s a tucked away treasure in the arty heart of West End.
A seemingly forgotten staircase in the heritage listed old Peter’s Ice-cream Factory, leads to my oasis. A tantalising mix of texture and colour, with exposed beams, high ceilings, and corrugated iron, effortlessly compliments the bright and inviting space of my studio and shop.
Designer and Fair Trade pieces line the raw timber walls, toys spill out onto the wool rug, and the mismatched jam jars full of tea eagerly await someone to drink them.
At a time in life when most things are about someone else, it’s nice to take the time to celebrate mum – and this is what the Monkey & Mum studio is all about.
Situated just above the bustling Boundary St Markets, which run from Friday afternoon until Sunday noon, it’s the perfect place to come and explore.
So I invite you to come along, sit awhile, and immerse yourself in the welcoming world of Monkey & Mum.
TUES – THURS + SAT: 10am-12noon FRI: 4pm-7pm
Hours don’t suit? Please give me a buzz.

I breathed a happy new life into the dark and scary four metre elephant that loomed over the studio. Click here to read more about her polka-dot transformation.
