My name is Kate Boadu.
Jimmy Halfpenny was born out of my own creative journey. He was my imaginary friend when I was a child. This little friend of mine was my own creative self coming out, the fun we would have together represented the adventurous, free spirited and strong nature I possess today. Jimmy was a quirky little fellow who I quite simply adored.
I am constantly inspired by children’s imagination and the development of their creativity through art. I am also lucky enough to have three crazy beautiful children of my own: – Zahlia, Klay and Ghana – who amaze me every day, inspire me to be a better Mum, to pursue my passions and follow my dreams.
The concept of Jimmy Halfpenny came to me in 2014 as a busy working mum. I am only too familiar with the pressures on Mum’s and Dad’s to try and juggle it all – family, work and play!
