nat on the road

Natalija Brunovs. Residing in Perth, Western Australia.
30 years old. A Latvian American Australian Pisces of nomadic dreams and questionable questioning. I've been a graphic designer, a company director, a photographer, a film director, a public speaker, a community arts facilitator, an activist, an artist and a saxophonist.
My plan has been to have no plan, I've simply done what I'm drawn to and been prepared to confront my fears.

My blog is my way to keep creative despite inspiration's ebbs and flows. The blog is my space to fill and it gives me a reason to develop an idea. With my invisible audience, I can 'launch' my ideas rather than store them in a little book.
Sometimes I imagine hundreds of people watching and other times I think I am alone...
