Hi, I’m COLLEEN SMITH and I’m an EXPERIMENTAL ARTISAN.
When I first set out on my business journey what I needed was a job, after being a stay at home Mum to raise two sons. I got the job but it was through my own business, Mulboo which I started after the passing of my Dad. I will always be grateful to him for his encouragement to always be the best I could be regardless of the storm and Thankful to my Mum for showing me the importance of strength and determination.
I am passionate about creating funky visual stuff. What I do is all Individually handcrafted. Sometimes I need a little help but mostly it’s me running the show.
Each piece I create is a journey of discovery. It’s always exciting to see the end result. I love nature and always look past the obvious focusing on the patterns that nature creates around us. My aim is to capture the energy in those patterns that surrounds me and reflect a sense of movement in each piece I create. All the time celebrating vibrant colour while ensuring that each piece is uniquely imperfect.
My work includes hand dyed/hand patterned scarves and clothing, digital art, art tile gift cards and beautifully vibrant earthy boho jewellery (I use stainless steel in all my jewellery to address any possible allergy issues)
“Mulboo” is an Aboriginal word meaning “Thunder” with its origins from the Kattang (Kutthung) language predominantly spoken among the Biripi people.
WHY DID I CHOOSE THAT NAME?
I chose Mulboo for a business name in honour of my father, a proud Biripi man. For his encouragement to always be the best I could be regardless of the storm ..! His inspiration represents the ethos behind this business.
