What makes your heart sing?
The ocean is my favorite place to be and I spend most my time there while I'm working on my art as it's the perfect inspiration for me.
When you aren't feeling motivated what do you do to spark your creativity?
It's rare that I'm unmotivated as I'm lucky enough to live in such a beautiful country with so much visual inspiration.
What are you Grateful for?
Family, Travel, The ocean, My health & My career
What do you do when you are feeling overwhelmed?
If I find myself feeling overwhelmed, I always turn to meditation. Meditation is one of the biggest and most important parts of my life. It helps me to relax, remain calm and stay focused.
How have you most recently made the world a better place?
Through my business Waves of Wellness, I encourage my clients and provide techniques on living a more positive, happier and healthier lifestyle. I believe this is helping to change the world one step at a time.
Thats really beautiful. Please tell us more about Waves of Wellness?
Waves of Wellness is all about creating happier, healthier and more positive lifestyles for my clients. I run a range of classes including stress management, meditation and chair yoga. I also hold holistic life counselling sessions. When I first started Waves of Wellness I never would have imagined it would be as rewarding as it has been! Each day I get to see people from all walks of life take on board my techniques and suggestions and watch them change their own lives in a positive way. It's so rewarding to know I helped to create this change. I'm lucky enough to do something I love as my job.
Love the name finatics, please tell me more?
I started painting fins about a year ago for fun, and started gaining recognition through Instagram and picking up a few small orders. Eventually I started painting more and more and now I have people worldwide ordering my hand painted fins! I do a range of different designs and the beauty is that each fin is unique. It's amazing to be able to combine two things I love - the ocean and artwork and do it for work! What a blessing!
Thanks Shan! We are so proud of your creation too & look forward to many more xx
All Shans pics make us smile & feel like its summer every day.
Follow her on Instagram and you won't be disappointed!
