A little bit about me
I’m Amelia, your friendly neighborhood creative butterfly. I’ve got this knack for a bit of this and a dash of that — a pro at none, but an enthusiast for all! My journey into the realm of creativity kicked off way back when I was a wee seven-year-old in Portland, Oregon, throwing my first pieces of pottery. Since then, it’s been a whirlwind of ceramics, mosaics, painting, jewelry-making, photography, gardening, yoga sessions, revival of old furniture…well, you get the point 😉 With all these bubbling interests, I decided it was high time to stir up a fresh project that could house my ever-growing array of passions.
FrikiFish: where creativity swims free
FrikiFish is a labor of love that’s my ticket to sharing stories, visuals, and the quirky fruits of creativity. But here’s the twist – it’s not just my playground; it’s an open invitation for you, me, and everyone else to dive in and show off their artistic chops. The project is born from my desire to shine a spotlight on the incredible and varied talents in Barcelona. I’m a firm believer that our creative juices flow strongest when we tap into our wild, unconventional sides.
Barcelona is the ultimate canvas of diversity, bravado, unity, collaboration, and the kind of creative flair that makes you do a double take. I chose this city as my home back in 2004, and I have been smitten ever since. Barcelona’s like that cool friend who’s fiercely individual even in a crowd. She’s standing tall against the tide of sameness, and I’m all in for supporting that unique spirit.
