Hi! I’m Jumi, Writer, Stylist, Educator & Founder here at The School of Artful Living!



To be able to explore our passions is one of life’s greatest gifts…  In fact… It has always been mine to explore my love for art, the interior space and all things lifestyle through the work that I do.

That’s why I started The School of Artful Living; I’m on a mission to inspire individuals to live lives which are in true alignment with who they really are…

I want them to feel inspired. Inspired to pursue their passions both in life and in business… and to share their journey so that others can become inspired too! To buy well, to live well… to live artfully in fact! In a world of struggle, uncertainty and creative pain, this is the thing that brings me the most joy. This is the thing that keeps me alive!

If you love something enough you must live and breathe it. I believe in harnessing all the juicy goodness that’s at the very core of you and making it become you! You can relinquish the shackles that have been bound by the pith of your creative might!


I currently reside in central London with my beautiful 13 – year old daughter Anaïs. Unlike myself, Anaïs is very good at Maths and could be easily described as a rational and logical thinker!

 I’ve spent much of my life adult life in education as a teacher of Art and Design. But alas, I decided to forgo my teaching job in December 2018 and make way for a more creative way of life! I now spend my days working as a private tutor, styling properties in and around London and painting in my spare time! Of course, I also write & create a range of educational resources for this here site too!

All in all, I’ve made it my mission to move towards creative living and to inspire others to do the same!

Want to know more? I also share my thoughts and ideas on the subject of creative living over on Instagram … Won’t you join me there… I look forward to hanging out!😘
