Creative Projects with Kerrie Patterson

Dawn Breaks podcast

FEB. 26, 2021

Key words: bullying, work stress, depression, creative projects, healing through art, unreasonable expectations

***Since recording this episode a little over a month ago, Kerrie has had a bit of a change in direction in terms of where she is taking her business (as so often happens when a business is new!). She is still supporting people with healing through creativity but is focusing more on the creative process rather than the bullying support. As this is the case, you'll still find her contactable below but you'll see that her 'about' info looks a little different to when she was speaking on the podcast.***

Connect with Kerrie:

"Hi I'm Kerrie, upholsterer and furniture upcycler. I believe that we should all be able to make our house a home. A space as individual as us.

I've always had a passion for interiors and my relaxation is in painting walls or revamping a neglected piece of furniture. I will never tire of that buzz and sense of achievement, when something drab is transformed into a thing of beauty.

When I left my professional career through burn-out, it was this love of colour and creativity which helped me to heal. The therapeutic process of revamping a piece of furniture, helped my tired mind to recover.

I now offer an online teaching platform where you can learn how to upholster or upcycle. Or if you fancy a bespoke piece, I can customise this for me you. I specialise in modern, eclectic patchwork so there's no limit to your design or your potential skills."
