Our founder Galy O’Connor was a fit and active mother of six until she fell ill. She spent long periods in hospital undergoing numerous operations and treatments. While in hospital and convalescing, she discovered the profound and therapeutic process of creativity through arts and crafts to keep her focus intact and spirits up. As a result of this and her fascination for the ‘tools of the (arts) trade’, she not only used the various mediums but also began to sell art supplies online in Australia.
The store started out as a reaction to a situation. I have peritoneal mesothelioma, asbestos poisoning.
I found myself after 7 years of serious illness, 17 major operations addicted to morphine to combat extreme pain.
Happily with extreme difficulty and with the help of the North Shore Pain clinic I managed to withdraw from the morphine. Not for the faint hearted I must say.
Whilst ill I discovered the arts and crafts which helped me through the darkest hours of suffering and isolation and now well, of morphine and happy I still turn to my beloved arts and crafts for enjoyment and inspiration.
I am based in Sydney Australia.
I am a personal trainer
A mother of a blended family of 6 children
And owner of two beautiful golden retrievers.
I support various charities through my sales to help others combat addiction and for cancer research especially that of Prof David Morris who is the leader in the field peritoneal cancers.
As of 27th February, 2021 (10 years since my diagnosis) I am dedicated this site to Prof David Morris - a unique Dr who with the help of a committed team work tirelessly to save lives. We proudly support the David Morris Cancer Research Fund
