We discovered Christina Macpherson: freelance model, writer and artist and took 5 to get to know her a little better. It’s safe to say that everyone at Mura HQ fell completely in love with this beautiful free spirit. She’s the perfect muse for our Festival Lookbook and here’s why….
What was the last song that you sang freely at the top of your lungs?
Beyonce, Lemonade!!! I always listen to Bey before a shoot, it gets me pumped and gives me confidence!! I’m just like, I’m a woman, hear me roar!
Your favourite novel?
I have so so many favourite books, I love to read! My favourite novel at the moment is called The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. It’s a fiction novel that takes place between Japan and Korea. It explores war and losing or gaining personal power.
The most recent thing you drew a picture of?
I drew a picture of a big mandala for a birthday card!
If you could be part of a famous band, living or dead, who would it be?
The Rolling Stones! They had so many crazy adventures!! I’d be Neil Young’s drummer because I play the drums!
(A woman of many talents!!)
What are you most passionate about?
I’m really passionate about getting involved with the environment and the ocean, and for others to do the same. I also want people to learn more, read more, and to be kinder and more gentle to one another instead of negative.
Who/what do you think is your spirit animal?
My spirit person is Tom Patterson, my boyfriend. (Swoon!!) My spirit animal would be a flying gazelle!! Haha no no, I’m just kidding!! I’d be some weird mix between a meerkat, koala and dolphin…
If you woke up tomorrow having gained one quality or ability what would it be?
Teleportation! Life would be so much easier and you could travel wherever you wanted whenever you wanted!
(Oh yes please!! Sucsi while I just pop over to Rome for the day!)
You travel a lot for work, if you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
I currently live between Australia and New Zealand and I’m very happy with that, they are both so special in their own way.
Where do you feel most at home?
I feel most at home on the road and with my human, Tom. For me, the grass is always greener on the other side, I love to travel to mix things up!
(A true vagabond at heart)
What makes up your ‘perfect day’?
Every morning Tom and I go for run and swim at the beach. After the beach I’d go home, put some music on and make a yummy breakfast!! I would spend the rest of the day chatting with Tom, playing guitar, writing, relaxing and swimming. Maybe go for an adventure like a drive to a waterfall! I’d end the day by coming home and making dinner with Tom. That’s my perfect day!!
Favourite quote/affirmation that you live by?
Be silly, be honest, be kind. It’s my favourite quote and it’s also on my Instagram!!
(We loveee that….)
Keep an eye out for Christina Macpherson in our festival lookbook that’s being released this Wednesday!! We are beyond excited!! We know you’ll love her just as much as we do…
Love & Luck
