Hi, I’m Amanda ‘Jessie’ Coates an Art Journaler, mixed media artist, creative, and doting dog owner to Jessie aka fluff (pictured).  I promote art and creativity which includes mindfulness, self-care, intention and intuitive practices.

I strongly believe that anyone and everyone can be creative and artistic.  Creativity comes from you and not the artist supplies that you can buy.  Even if you have a cardboard box and a ballpoint pen, you can create something.  In fact using recycled materials can be a great source of fun!

My pen name is Amanda Jessie (there is another artist/creative who has my  name, Amanda Coates) But I felt that there was no better name for me than my very own fluffy pup companion, Jessie, who is part of my creative lifestyle!
