Goodbye 2016

2016 is almost over, which I am sure many of us can say with a sigh of relief! It has certainly been a complicated year, filled with political surprises, great loss of many iconic celebrities and a year that is going to be remembered in history. Even though there were many lows in 2016, I…

Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas to all, if you celebrate this holiday I hope you had a really great day.  My Christmas was a little different this year. Normally I spend it at home with mum, watching movies all day and my dad visits his family. Because my grandparents (dads side) have not been well, we decided to…

My journey in digital art

As the year is winding down, I often feel it’s a time for reflection and consideration of time that has passed. I am currently studying Digital Design at university and thought it would be a good opportunity to share my journey creating digital art. From my early work in 2008 to my most recent in…

Lost Letter: Nanna

The Lost Letters is a segment on my blog where I write a letter to a friend or relative that has died. In each letter, I hope to be able to write what I would tell them if I had the chance and allow it to be a healing process to be able to ‘write…

Texture

I finally managed to pick up my camera again and head outside. It has been a while since I had taken the time to explore with photography and this was a lot of fun to actually observe and shoot. I have always had an interest in textures and wanted to take a set of photographs…

Typography Practice

For the past 8+ weeks I have been studying typography. I have been learning valuable lessons on many ways to; express meaning, communicate clearly, organise information and how design has evolved (and continues to evolve). What I have found particularly fundamental to developing my knowledge has been both in exploring ways that words communicate to us, through…
