I am a 17 year old design student from New Zealand who has a passion and aptitude for art. I thoroughly enjoy the creative process of creating unique pieces of art and coming up with innovative ways to communicate messages with an audience. I received the top design award of my school in 2014 and this has confirmed to me that it is something I want to pursue in the future. I also enjoy music and have an interest in becoming a radio presenter as well. I sell canvas illustrations as a way to hone my skills and I take Design at NCEA Level 3. Art is something that I have loved since I was a child, and the possibility of being able to pursue this as a career at an international level truly excites me to an unfamiliar degree.
