Who we are
Stellar Violets founder
Lucinda writes, gardens, and
brings creative direction to Stellar Violets
Founder / Creative Director
In tending the hearth fires of Stellar Violets, Lucinda’s deepest care is for the web of life. This care is outworked through Stellar Violets Place-making, writing (check out our latest blog), and an audio learning journey called Coming Home to Our Heartland.
After studies in Communications, and Creative Industries at Curtin and QUT, Lucinda travelled for many years abroad, before eventually returning to her homelands, around Manjimup.
Here, alongside her family apple orchards, Lucinda felt called to begin Stellar Violets. A dream, a lifework, a lovechild, a beautiful madness: Stellar Violets is many things. Most of all, it’s an offering from Lucinda’s heart and a quest to co-create the world many of us long for.
