Meet Anjuli. Born in Australia to two eccentric, musical and artistic parents, Anjuli grew up in Glastonbury, UK with her sister and mother, after her parents separated when she was 3. During her early childhood, they lived in a B&B attic room and attended nearly every festival in the land. Involved in countless community plays, dance performances, alternative events and celebrations for every reason possible, her upbringing was colourful and she had an amazing group of friends. 
Despite this, life was burdened by an unhealthy relationship with her mother, which worsened into her late teens. Feeling emotionally burnt out and unmotivated to do University, Anjuli spent a few years travelling and working, to help find her purpose, and began a relationship with a life long friend. They later married and, after the birth of their daughter, migrated to Australia in 2008. Unfortunately a sense of displacement and depression took hold of her. Eager to shake it off and desperate for a creative outlet, Anjuli would make art, including painting their appliances. In 2013 she finally found and enrolled in an online surface pattern design course which has led to her starting her own business - JeliRAD Designs. Finding the balance between motherhood and designing, Anjuli continues to do what she loves and focuses on one day having her own homewares range, and also joining a design studio! She is a Strong Woman.
