Updated: 2 days ago

By now you'll recognise the chirpy little bird and a sturdy anchor images all over everything I do. But have you ever wondered what's the story behind the 'Little Bird Little Sailor' logo and brand and what it could mean to you?

Behind the 'Little Bird Little Sailor' logo & brand? Let's dive in!


As a singer-songwriter and a mum, I found inspiration in my own kids. One's a whirlwind of creativity, flapping arms like a little bird, while the other's a methodical planner, navigating life's seas like a little sailor.

So, I channelled these vibes into writing a song for my debut album called 'Little Bird Little Sailor', personifying these personality traits and blending images of creativity and practicality to motivate and inspire my boys to overcome fear of failure and to take that leap of faith.


Now, the Little Bird symbolises creativity and dreaming big, while the Little Sailor embodies problem-solving and resilience. Together, they remind us of our unique strengths - a perfect combo like fish and chips from the chippy on Largs seafront! (I'm writing this at lunch time sorry!)

And guess what? This dynamic duo isn't just for show. It's the cornerstone of everything I do, from music to photography to mentoring budding artists. Talk about spreading wings and dropping anchors! ;)


So, whether you're belting out tunes or working with me on your next photography project, remember: embrace your inner Little Bird and Little Sailor. They're the secret sauce to unleashing your full potential!
