I am a creative – a life without creativity is not a life I choose. I am a writer – my words on a page are simply there to inspire, I write because it feels natural for me to do so, it’s a part of who I am. I am a photographer – every image I take conveys a story. With today’s tools; we all take photographs but we all see the world in a different light. I am a musician – I play music for fun, I dabble with songs, sounds and melodies; music brings warmth to my soul. I am an artist – I paint with colour, I paint with mood, I paint when I feel like it. I am a cook – I cook for family and friends. I learnt from the best: my grandmother, my father, and tv chefs who share their knowledge of good food. I am an advocate for the environment, I am not an activist, but I am active in exploring information about safe-keeping the world around me. I am a traveller – my passport is my door and window to discovering and experiencing this planet. I choose to surround myself with positively creative individuals – they help me grow and continue to learn; they inspire me.
I am Ann Ivy Male – I use art, images and musings to tell my stories.
