It’s extremely important for women to create because creation IS power, not just for ourselves but for those we create for, and even those we don’t. Not everyone has access or is able to create, but for those of us privileged enough we should continue to build and create a platform so that one day, when they can, they’ll have somewhere strong to stand on.
Love is the ultimate sacrifice.
I do a lot of thinking and people-watching on the bus to and from uni, and when it comes to the creating part I’m usually sitting on a comfy chair at my desk with a midnight snack and and some tea.
Anything that’s nostalgic and sentimental, it’s all about the feels.
I used to draw characters from movies like The Lion King, A Bugs Life and the Swan Princess on scrap pieces of paper lying around the house before I went to Preschool. I’m also told that when I was two I painted my dads car with mud and rocks once too.
You do you. Be inspired by others, but don’t become them. There’s nothing more spectacular than being unique, so experiment and play around as much as you can. We’re all still learning so it’s OK to laugh at yourself sometimes and not take things too seriously.
Growing up in such a multicultural country, I’ve been able to see the richness that people from all walks of life bring to our culture – not only peacefully co-existing with each other but flourishing. I think that’s why discrimination based on religious or racial stereotypes infuriate me – not because I’ve been on the receiving end, but as an Australian – those simply aren’t our values.
My loved ones, my pencil case, my pets & avocados (Yummo!).
Since I’m always busy during the day juggling work, uni and what’s left of my social life (not much) I only have time during the night which is super convenient since everyone is asleep I have no distractions.
I find that I create more meaningful work when I’m at extreme ends of the spectrum. I tend to create more out of emotion than boredom.
Ordinary but extraordinary people, friends, complete strangers, family and God.
