Behind the Canvas

 Hi, I’m Shay, A proud Gen-X, coastal native, born under southern skies on a hot mid-summer’s afternoon. Some may know me as Flamingo Chick, my alter ego & inner muse who shares my personal values centred on fun, curiosity, & kindness (FCK). Unnaturally obsessed with creativity (& flamingos), I identify as a world wandering, adventure seeking Sea Witch, with a dash of neuro-spice (& all things nice). Devoted to both my fur & human families, my pronouns are she/her or they/them, as a proud pansexual grateful to be a loving & loyal wife to my innovative & adventure loving mountain man. Liberated from corporate captivity, & bravely recovered from burnout, bullying & betrayal, I’ve overcome several obstacles (thus far), including a painful illness that drained the life-quality from my teenage years through my twenties, culminating in deep loss & grief when my dreams of motherhood were broken an agonising three times. From this & other significant challenges, I learned to design my life & create more peace, harmony & authentic joy everyday. I found my beautiful Omah Segara, (home by the sea), where I blissfully live with curiosity & creativity as a storyteller, writer, artist, designer, mentor & muse. Life design helps me to grow & thrive, I love more, give more, I’ve become more, & live more everyday. Now I help others through Life Design Creative. With fun, curious & kind creativity & a little magick, we can all live more blissful lives. Although childless here on Earth, I am mama to three (pink feathered) baby angels in heaven - the catalyst & origin of The3Flamingos. From a small idea born from personal tragedy, T3F evolved to help others, and grew to encompass three businesses: FCKcreative, Life Design Creative, and Omah Segara. I warmly welcome & invite you to explore & discover for yourself the magick & mystery, illuminating insights, inspiring imagery & practical philosophies that help you bring design to your life. Shay B Michelle AKA Flamingo Chick
