Since I was young, I've always had the inkling to be creative. It gives me a fire in my belly - you know the type that gets you up in the morning?
I recently graduated from QUT (Class of '19) with a Bachelor of Creative Industries (Distinction). I was what was referred to as a "mature-aged" student, despite being in my early twenties. Like how you would describe a sharp cheddar or antique wine. Not that I minded, as an organised person, I believed that time was on my side. 1 1/2 years into my degree, one of my art pieces (photographic) - Icebergs, was chosen as a FInalist in the Brisbane Art Prize. That really cemented my love for creating photos, graphics and artworks!
To me, it doesn't matter how quirky, weird or unusual what I create it - it will be valued by at least one person.
