Hello, my name is ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป Kassy O’Shea. I am a 34-year-old Australian ๐ŸŽจgraphic design & ๐Ÿ“ท photography student who creates ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽจ digital art, ๐Ÿ–ฅ makes websites and ๐Ÿ“• writes books.

I love to express myself through ๐Ÿ’–creativity, ๐Ÿ–ฅdesign, ๐ŸŽจart, ๐Ÿ“ธphotography and ๐Ÿ“šwriting. I care deeply about my family, friends and pets (I have a few cats ๐Ÿ˜…). I value honesty, compassion and equality and endeavour to share kindness and understanding.

I experience mental illness and was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, anxiety and depression in 2015. Living with a mental disability can be a struggle, with good days and bad days. I have found the key to managing my illness is understanding my triggers, celebrating the small wins and not blaming myself for something I can not control. โœจ

I am currently studying a ๐ŸŽ“Bachelor of Creative Arts and Design (Graphic Design / Photography) with Charles Sturt University. I started my own ๐Ÿ’ผbusiness (Klue) in March 2012 and Cute Magic in September 2018. ๐Ÿ˜€

I have written, illustrated and self-published two ๐Ÿ“—children’s books; Tom and Geraldene (2015) and Peaty the Worm (2016). I enjoy the whole process of writing books and hope to continue to create many more. ๐Ÿ˜

About Moonstone

Moonstone is a blog where I share my life through words and pictures. Posts include a range of subjects from personal reflections, university recaps, dealing with mental illness, tutorials, freebies and more.

I started blogging in 2003 at the age of 16 and found it was a great hobby to share my thoughts and meet a lot of beautiful people. In 2006 I started the blog under the online alias of Kya (in the early years of the internet, it was common to do this). After running for almost 11 years, I decided in December 2017 to use my real name, and thus Moonstone was born.

I hope that my blog can be an enjoyable place to find out more about my life, my creative projects and provide an avenue to connect with the blogging community. ๐Ÿ’–
