About Wandering Wild
Oh hey - thanks for stopping by. What and who is Wandering Wilson I hear you say? Well that's me and my crazy collective of Wanderings.
There is a Wandering for every aspect of my life and work and you have landed in my Wandering World of Photography and artistry.
Hello Folks! My name is Michelle and I am crazy , quirky, creative award winning professional photographer, designer, entrepreneur and business owner currently living in the rustic charms of Rutland with my lovely husband, teenage daughter and my little black cat, Archie. Im a mum of 3 - two who have already flown the nest and a nan to a cute little new baby named Freddie.
Im a bit of a tree hugger with a passion for all things nature - I love to ski and be amongst the outdoors even though Im always cold!
I'm passionate about kindness and always being honest, my colleagues and friends would describe me as caring, trustworthy, kind, a bit 'direct' at times and a typical Sagittarius! I asked my husband to describe me in 3 words - his answer - "Simply F**king fabulous" - but he's biased!
I have worked in a number of professions over the years from starting off in my 20's modelling and going on to set up my own model agency, through to running a team of 20 in a financial services company. Being a model also means I have great insight with posing to look as natural as possible.There's no need to fret about "hating the camera" with me :)
In between those 2 main careers I became a writer and pro-photographer and now a stationer with my own brand of stationery.
Why stationery I hear you holla, Well 5 years ago I lost all my hair - putting it down to stress I decided to create a planner to help organise myself and maintain my wellbeing, that turned into the stationery business and is now helping a lot of busy woman plan their lives and take care of themselves at the same time - take a look at www.bossbird.co.uk.
I blogged about my hairloss to help others, as it was a really depressing time for me. Please have a read through my hairloss blog ...its over there ..to your right :)
That's me in a nutshell, my past and present... Who knows what the future will bring...
