Hi! I’m Jumi,  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 tap into their innate creative power and to design lives for themselves 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!

I believe in the power of creativity. Tapping into our unique creative power is the key to unlocking the true beauty of life. The key to creating a better world. Creativity turns our thoughts into reality and brings our dreams into existence. Creativity is the food of life and the savour of mankind. It is through creativity that we are able to express our love to the world and give service to others.  Without creativity there is nothing. Our souls perish, the world becomes darker… our dreams fade away.

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!

 You are purposeful. You are creative. You are whole. 


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 methodical thinker! Anaïs’ creative talent therein lies in her ability to get me spending copious amounts of cash on delectable treats at the supermarket! I’m not joking! 

 I’ve spent much of my life working in education as a teacher of Art and Design and I also love to teach creative writing! So much of the creativity within us comes through the words that we speak and so many of the things that manifest in our lives come through the words that we put on paper! Wouldn’t you agree?  

I’ve made it my mission to live a creative life doing all the things that I love through writing, painting and spending time in beautiful spaces through my work as a stylist.
