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 and working as a muse with women who want to uncover their unique beauty and freely express it in the world. Head over to my new website here to check out my current musings and offerings.


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 is currently looking at ways to further embody her practice through various movement/dance based modalities.

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, council clean up streets and her nesting spaces.
