Hi!! I’m Rondelle and I’m on a mission to live a creative, fun-filled, simplified and sustainable life all while raising three amazing children and growing my business!
I’m 38 years old and my girls and I live on the stunning Mornington Peninsula, about an hour south of Melbourne.
Here, I’m sharing my artwork, handmade product range and creative journey with you, but also to help YOU on your own creative journey. It’s sometimes hard to find likeminded people when it comes to your hobbies and passions and I just LOVE encouraging others when I see them taking steps (however small) towards their dreams. It’s just so damn exciting!!!
More About My Businesses
I could be a collector of businesses if I wanted to. I’m always coming up with new business ideas, but until a human cloning machine is invented I’ll just have to stick to the few I have.
My main biz is Rondelle Designs which is a fun, quirky and cheerful range of art, organic wheat bags, greeting cards and other gift and homeware products. You can find out more about my current range by clicking on the ‘PRODUCT INFO’ tab at the top of the page.
My studio and workshop is situated at my second business ‘The Artful Collective’ in the Dromana Industrial Estate on Melbourne’s glorious Mornington Peninsula. I co-own The Artful Collective with my florist friend ‘Flowers by Ren’ who also has her studio/workshop space set up there. And then we have a lovely retail section at the front of the factory where we rent out space for other local creatives to showcase and sell their wares alongside our own.

I also have a third business called Rita and Frank but it hasn’t quite decided exactly what type of business it wants to be yet so I’ll tell you more about that one once I know myself ha!
Life is very action packed and sometimes quite stressful financially because my businesses are still in the growth stage BUT deciding to quit the 9 to 5 and follow my creative dreams was the best decision I ever made and I wouldn’t change it for the world
