Ever noticed a woman’s eyes sparkle when she’s engaged in something she’s passionate about? The ripple effect in community when mothers find their spark again and thrive as individuals?
I help creative women sustain their professional identity alongside motherhood. Providing a space to connect, collaborate and opportunity to build their creative profession, passion for life and feel supported along the way.
I’ve built my business as a mother, maintained my own identity while available for my family. I can help others use these strategies.
I’m Marie-Nicole, founder of Creators Nest, a creative co-working space… where ideas are concieved, incubated and take flight!

I’m also an artisan who made a tree change to our rural location 7 years ago with my young family.
Our expansive surroundings while breath taking amplified isolation, working alone. Trading at markets to work alongside other artisans was one solution.
Days between still spent a lone, I soon realised the lack of contact with others, on a daily basis, was having a negative affect on me and in turn my family.
So I started taking any part of my production that was mobile into town and worked in a cafes.
Often crossing paths with others doing the similar thing, with their computers.
Approached regularly by women, who wished they could start their own business and work flexible hours. But didn’t have the room at home or would struggle switching off from the distraction of household duties… and spend all that time alone.
I saw a need for a creative co-working space in our town.
A space to enable makers to work along side each other, collaborate, share costs, build a solid foundation for their business, contribute to employment opportunity in the community, as well as give travellers more to do when they visit.
Reaching creatives globally through the Creators Nest blog providing, inspiration, support and tips for transforming dreams into reality, without compromising time with family or connection with others.
