Well, hello there creative soul!
I’m Robyn Petrik - a writer, artist, and creativity enthusiast. I’m originally from Vancouver, Canada, but I’m currently living life as a digital nomad in Southeast Asia.
I’ve always enjoyed creative hobbies. When I was a kid, it was friendship bracelets and sewing scrunchies. As I got older, it was crocheting, making handmade books, and decorating cakes. Now, I do digital hand lettering and abstract painting. But through the years, writing has always been my favourite creative outlet and my most consistent one.
In 2014, I started completing more writing courses, taking on freelance writing jobs in my spare time, and saving money. At the of end of the year, I decided to take the big leap to freelancing full-time!
I love writing something new for my clients every day because it feels like a mini-adventure. I'm also currently creating art prints that combine my writing and digital painting, which you can purchase and download in my Etsy shop.
Fun things to know about me:
I'm an obsessive reader and I'll never catch up on my 'To Be Read' list. There are currently 92 books waiting for me on my Kindle and 482 books on my To-Read shelf on Goodreads.
I went skydiving in 2012, and it was one of the best experiences of my life. If your friends ever ask you to jump out of a plane at 13,000 feet with them, DO IT.
I trekked to Everest Base Camp in May of 2019, and it was another one of the best experiences of my life. The beauty of the Himalayan mountains is impossible to describe!
I have six tattoos and some of them have great stories behind them. One is a tattoo of Mount Everest that I got in Nepal, and another is two words of a seven-page poem that nearly 1500 people around the world are getting tattooed on them.
I’ve been to Iceland twice, and I’m going again in November of 2019. It’s my favourite country to visit because the scenery is incredible and it’s so easy to feel at home there.
