About Me
I'm Leonie, full time sales rep, mother to a toddler, designer of all things cute at Tiny Safari and general crazy lady who does too much in any given day!

I studied design in my hometown of Christchurch, New Zealand. I ran my own clothing business called Side Effect Clothing when I graduated and later worked on props and staging at major music festivals in the South Island including Massive Productions Soulstice events, Unity at the Bus Exchange and Alpine Unity in the Southern Alps.

I went on to work as a Photoshop editor and studio assistant and then worked as a Graphic Artist and Visual Merchandising Support Coordinator. My newly created role of National Visual Merchandiser was made redundant 6 months after I started at The BBQ Factory and I fell into sales!

I now live in Perth, Australia, we moved here after the earthquakes in 2011. We built a house and a new life, we had a baby. I went back to work when my daughter was 4 months old, I needed creativity in my life so I started making mobiles to sell at markets.
