Hi, I'm MJ, the person behind Mad Jessie!

I am an artist, an art educator, a maker and business woman. I love the sea, and being outdoors in nature, and I live on a small sailboat in county Waterford with my dog. I started Mad Jessie in 2018 as I was recovering from back surgery, and I'm still going today!

The most important message behind Mad Jessie is that I want YOU to feel good about yourself. So take some time for yourself today, pop outside, take a deep breath, and remember how brilliant you are! And if you need a helping hand - you can sign up to my emails where I will send you FREE mood boosting reminders every month - Because it really is all about how you FEEL, and I want you to feel GREAT!

FREE Mood Boosting Reminders!

I have put together small steps, as an easy way to remind you to take a moment in your week, and reconnect with yourself and your surroundings.

On the 1st of every month, I will send you two of these wallpaper reminders, to use as you please throughout the month, and to hopefully help make your life that little bit better.

I would love to know if they do!

Luxury, Limited, Quality Totes I love these totes and have put a lot of... 

Origins - How it all began

  • Sustainability

    It is a massive word that covers a whole lot. Here at Mad Jessie I am taking it one step at a time, as I educate myself on sustainability, and then take steps to moving the business to becoming more and more sustainable. It’s a big responsibility, but I think if we all take time to learn, and then to change our lives little by little, it will be more manageable, and we will be able to see our progress.

  • mindfulness and creation


    Mindfulness is important. Drawing is a mindful practice, and creation is quite a mindful practice, so in that way, it’s quite an important part of Mad Jessie. I also share this process of creation through short videos online. 

    I really like creating these videos for others because it makes me take a step back and draw more, spending time being mindful and just creating.

    Last year I introduced a colouring book and colouring-in pencils, so that others can spend time, being mindful for themselves and taking some time out from their lives, clearing their minds and colouring in. it’s a great practice.

  • Boat Life

    Living Aboard... Is the best!

    It really is! - It’s simple and cozy and fun and a bit of an adventure. It’s also AFFORDABLE!

    It’s not all sunshine and roses - my biggest enemy is mould in humid winters, and when something breaks, I have to fix it pretty quick! The electrics have yet to go in, and the water tank (if only you knew what a luxury hot water from a tap is!!!) but every morning I get to see the sunrise. At night, I can see the moon from my bed through the window. And in the evenings I am rocked to sleep by the sound of the waves lapping up against the hull of the boat - In these moments, it is pure bliss.
