I am a year 12 student at Cashmere High School. I have always enjoyed drawing & love how creative media can help us experience life in new & unexpected ways.
Growing up in Afghanistan, I had the privilege of experiencing different cultures & hearing stories from all around the world. Returning to NZ, I have continued to grow & develop & love to express my unique experiences & ideas through my art & animation.
Over the past few years, I have developed both my interest in traditional drawing & painting techniques, digital art & design. I began with stop motion animation & then progressed to traditional 2D & digital 2D/3D animation techniques. I appreciate a combination of frame by frame & rigged animation.
I have helped start & run an animation club at school (covering the 12 principles of animation). This year, I have especially focused on enthusing others to animate, by creating a set of grease pencil tutorials and demonstration videos, as well as working on my own projects.
