The Eyrie was set up in 2010 as a creative holism studio to explore themes around storytelling and place. 7 years on, my vision has now morphed into writing about art and archetypes, and the intimate moments where the personal and universal meet. Head over to my new website here.


Cherise Lily Nana is an interdisciplinary artist. She has a particular interest in exploring stories and metanarratives that revolve around how we understand our place in this world. Her practice is participatory and relational in nature and involves a curated process of weaving together investigative tools including; walking, mapping, photography, design, curating/collecting, systems thinking, blogging and writing.

Cherise holds a BA in Art History, a Grad Dip in Communications (Professional Writing) and has appeared in This Next Wave, Wildlife Australia and Theory of Everything magazines.

Her favourite places are libraries, art galleries (especially the art postcard section in the shop), abandoned industrial sites, artisan & farmer’s markets, sunny rocks, arts festivals,  and her nesting spaces.
