My name is Michaela Bolzan and I am the founder of Creative & Co.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts Honours (Drama) from the University of Newcastle, Australia, and have worked as a Creative Director for several local and international production companies.
In the months leading up to starting my own company, I chanced upon a quote by Pablo Picasso:
“Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up.”
As a child I was incredibly creative, always painting, doing craft, and more often than not wearing some wacky fancy dress! For many of us however, once adulthood comes, and we find ourselves in positions of responsibility, both personally and professionally, we suppress a lot of our creativity in order to conform. I am fascinated by the creative process and now want to explore it in other people across a wide range of occupations. My aim is to discover their passions, learn from where they get their inspiration, and begin to understand their creative process. Hopefully we can all learn how to tap into the inner creativity in us all.
Creative & Co is about being true to yourself; marching to the beat of your own drum is to be celebrated!
