About

I’m determined to use the word “multifarious” because I like it so much and because it describes the intrepid curation of art, design, music and other guff that is Jimmy Hornet.

My left and right brain are often at odds. The result is that although I am intrinsically creative, I fall into organising artistic endeavours, rather than producing them. Jimmy Hornet allows me to corral and cajole, the artistic talent of others.

In 2020 I will be opening an emporium in Melbourne. There you will be able to shop, eat, drink, and listen to live music. Until then I will be building the brand, selecting fabulous pieces, collaborating with creative folk, and selling online.

Welcome to the bizarre bazaar that is Jimmy Hornet.
