…Kerri Awosile, the artist, designer, and lover of all things creative.
From feeling underwhelmed by weekly tasks or lacklustre style, to feeling overwhelmed by the ‘grey cloud’ and the frustration of not living or working in the inspiring way you imagine. I (Kerri Awosile) understand what it’s like to want more creativity, light, and fulfilment in life or business.
I understand because I’ve been there myself… but I’ve also experienced, first-hand, how things can change.
if i can have a more creative and fulfilling life – then why can't you?
I know there are “really important” things that make the world go round (and I’m not just talking to-do lists and paperwork) but, I also believe, so many of us could experience a bit more joy and fulfilment day-to-day if we had the resources, time, ability, and inspiration to be more creative.
My ethos in life is quite simple (if somewhat cryptic): to be light and share my light with others.
If you’re now thinking ‘what?’, I guess another way for me to put it is… creativity makes me feel good and I want to share that feel-good feeling with you!
I create artwork and greeting cards to spread some smiles in life, provide creative services for inspiring and small UK businesses so they can focus on the things they love, and share inspiration and insight for a fulfilling life.
My love of creativity isn’t a new thing, I’ve always been creative. As a child, colouring and making ‘things’ was my favourite activity (aside from playing outside with friends). By the time I was a teenager I would rather dream up house designs, write stories, and paint, than worry about the latest band to follow or party to attend. When asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I proudly declared ‘an entrepreneur’. The idea of limiting myself to just one career or ambition felt so dull, and the thought of someone else telling me what I could or couldn’t create was a nightmare. So ‘entrepreneur’ it was.
Eventually, after dabbling with many possibilities, from handmade greeting cards to wedding floristry (and even starting my own cake business), I really focused in on what gives me joy and started thinking of ways I could help bring the same feeling to others. After all, if I can have a more creative and fulfilling life – then why can’t you? That’s when the idea for the Kerri Awosile brand and business was born.
