I was born and raised on my parent’s farm in a little country town called Burekup, South Western Australia, then travelled for 10 years through the North of Western Australia, the Kimberley’s, and Northern Territory. This only amplified my abiding and profound love of the sights, sounds and scents of the Australian landscape and all she holds.
Over the years I have begun to see the devastating damage and loss to our precious landscapes and nature, which propelled me to act, not just complain and blame everyone else.
I realized I could combine my love of nature with a compelling story as to how we can all make a difference to the ecology, one step at a time.
So ten years ago I created M&M ECO Cleaning and Housekeeping to demonstrate my continuing journey towards personal change and share my knowledge as to how we can all take those small steps to leave a healthier planet, for ourselves and all who follow us.
My development of signature cleaning methods also lead to the development of natural cleaning products, that were not only good for the environment, they actually worked.
During the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, time was something I had, and it provided me to further expand my dream of extending the range and develop a whole new Sister Company.
I am so excited to have given birth to Marjorie & May in December 2020.
My wish is that the products, images and stories that you will see, hear and experience will inspire you to make one more choice towards a safer, healthier, beautiful life that you deserve and the planet will love you for.
My other wish is that Marjorie & May reminds you to become even more connected to nature and you take the time to honour yourself, your unique gifts and passions, and to top still in nature for just a moment or for hours and days and listen to the messages she has just for you.
Marjorie & May is for your whole self, your body, spirit and soul. I invite you on the journey with me and I can’t wait to hear all your experiences and stories we share along the way.
Love and Gratitude
Who is Marjorie and May?
Our Brand Marjorie & May is inspired by two amazing women in my childhood that helped set the scene for my love of nature. My Great Aunt Marjorie, a watercolor artist and basket weaver from our native Australian grasses, and her first cousin who was May Gibbs, famous Australian Author of Children’s books – Snuggle Pot and Cuddle Pie is one of the most recognisable. I grew up on these stories and many excursions into the bush with Aunty Marjorie. Both women were strong yet sensitive, funny and quirky, lead simple yet rich lives, loved, respected and helped protect our wilderness through showcasing its beauty and magic on paper in word, stories and paint. Their life’s work and dedication to sharing the Australian Bush magic was between the late 1890’s to the early 1990’s.
I feel like the 3rd woman, the little Sister in the bunch, here now to continue the stories and passion they shared to create awareness of our deep connection with nature and how at all costs we must save our planet for the next generation to live and thrive in. They were Eco Warrior Goddesses of their time. This is now my time to honour them, their contribution, and continue the story and make a real difference as they did.
