Matilda Butler

My name is Matilda Butler and I’m a new kid on the blogging block at Creative Drinks. I’ll be providing you with the latest Brisbane art discoveries, interviews and news. I’ll also be helping organise our exciting events every month, overseeing our social media and generally working to see our talent in Brisbane get connected and have fun. When I’m not snacking, thinking about snacks or talking about getting a snack, you’ll find me with my nose in a sketchbook, a sci-fi book or a biography. I’m known to play a favourite album on repeat for weeks and I like to dabble in photography – but enough about me! As a journalism student at QUT, I’ve got a curious streak and I’m always keen to hear your opinions, news and art advice. So come shake my hand, say hello, or if you’re a fan of virtual friendships, send me a message!
