Mom's The Word - Roanne Jacobson

April 21, 2017 1 min read

MEET ROANNE: Business owner, designer, coffee drinker and mother to Jack, 11 years and Adam, 9 years. Ro shares with us her thoughts on raising sons in a busy world, AND what is on her Mother’s Day wishlist...


 (Roanne carries new style, Gita in black 'bubble' textured leather)


Best part about being a mother: The quiet confidential conversations and the cuddles.

Favourite parenting advice you received: It goes fast, so make the moments count.

What you didn't see coming: How they would destroy my furniture.

Raising sons in this busy world: Get them outdoors and active.

Getting that balance between work and motherhood: Balance comes with two big words…Get Help. Your partner, grandparents, babysitters, house cleaners, whatever it takes.

Values you want to instil in your boys: Hard work, determination, passion and focus and being a good person while following your dreams.

Your Ideal Sunday: A sleep in followed by coffee and a nice long walk.

Your own mum: Never sat down. I really didn’t get this growing up, I couldn’t understand how it was that she could never stop and relax. I get it now.

Mother's day wish list: It’s an bi-annual request to my children that occurs on my birthday and mother’s day… no fighting.

Carmel is unpretentious, down to earth and effortlessly cool. When we meet her at Turua Gallery she is nonchalant about her recent sold out show, instead, in true artist form she can see only what she would change about each painting. We were intrigued to find out more about the artist and mother behind the paintings. We hope you enjoy this Q+A with Carmel.
