About me

Location New Zealand
Introduction I am a biologist and librarian by training and a creative at heart. My blog name adi&bert comes from a blend of names- my mother, Adeline aka Addy, who was a creative business woman who sewed, painted, dressed hair, hats and wigs and died far too young. The second part of my brand name is from my father, Albert (aka Sonny), who had a musical touch and could hold a note or two. Recently I used my blog and Instagram profile to help promote the work of artisans and makers who are developing their businesses. I collaborate with them by running competitions on their behalf on Instagram. I run photo challenges to various hashtags like #thebotanicalseries and #theperfectlyimperfectseries to encourage participants to be creative in their photography. I also feature creatives on my Instagram Stories who post to these tags and occasionally run giveways. If you run a small business with ethical and sustainable intentions and would like to work with me, I would love to hear from you. See my blog for feature articles about the businesses and series titles.
