Anna & Ryan

I started out by running adult art classes in Darwin, to pass the time and give myself a break from working for the military. I found it to be such a rewarding experience, I spent the next few years organising a variety of in-person and online craft classes for adults, whilst continuing to serve and moving from city to city, adapting to the pandemic as I went. This resulted in ANU recruiting me to create virtual online art programs, winning the ‘Most Valuable Teacher’ award in my first semester there. Despite continuously growing requests for more classes from ANU and my own students, I have not had the chance to fully commit to a business or a project.

We started making soaps and candles as a way to cut down on plastic waste, experimenting and giving samples to family. After great feedback we decided to combine this with my artwork into a small, part-time business and inspire others to find enjoyment in everyday items and activities. Colour City Gifts combines my passion for being creative and reducing waste.

This venture would not have been possible without the love, support, and encouragement from my wonderful partner Ryan, who has been there every step of the way. Whether it’s a crazy new idea for a product, a late night run to the store, or helping deliver packages on the weekend, he is always there for me. He is my rock.
