My creative streak was developed and nurtured from a very early age, playing shop assistant in my Nonna’s Singer sewing shop. It was in this space that I was constantly exposed to textiles and patterns, which may have lead to the ‘creative expression’ of drawing all over tables, designing fashion for my dollies and gluing my fingers together crafting paddle-pop structures… The perfect playground for creativity, I was in heaven!
Through my adolescence, fine art became a prominent attribute as I regularly participated in Queensland Regional Youth Art Exhibitions and Competitions. This active involvement naturally lead to the pursuit of a Bachelor in Visual Arts, majoring Printmaking and Drawing, and later my enrolment into Shillington College – School of Graphic Design.
Freelancing has been my steady groove since 2011, as well as learning the ropes of motherhood and also extending myself to part-time studio opportunities. That was until… I finally reached my tipping point and decided to evolve Tondo Creative mid-2019!
