2013 was a year of change for me – moving to the big smoke of Auckland, starting a new job in a very different school, making new friends… but I stayed in my comfort zone when it came to my art and design. After some decent prodding from a creative friend, I have decided to set a few goals for my second year in the concrete jungle. My hope is that I will actually follow through with these goals now that I have shared them with the online world.
Keep stopping by to see how I’m going with the goals!

Hi everyone. I just wanted to take a little break from posting about my Art/Design, and tell you about Relay For Life. Ormiston Senior College is putting together a Relay For Life team for the 2014 event. This is an event to raise money for the Cancer Society. Team members keep their baton moving around a track from midday Saturday 29th March until midday Sunday 30th March. Our team is dressing up as “Where’s Wally?” for the event, and our fundraising goal (which we must reach before the event) is $3000. Please take a look at our team page and donate generously to the Cancer Society:
On the team page, I shared a post I found online. It is the story of a woman’s battle with breast cancer told through photos taken by her husband – Angelo Merendino. “He wanted to humanize the face of cancer on the face of his wife. The photos speak for themselves.”

Funnily enough my final day of my 30 day challenge has consisted of doing work for my students, and having no time to sit down and catch my breath. But I’m going to claim this exhibition as being partially my own work, so it qualifies as part of the 30 day challenge. As much as my students frustrate me at times, I am really proud of them for completing this work on time to a decent standard. This 30 day challenge has been so good for me – it has helped me get out of a creative rut, and made me realise that even when I don’t feel like creating something, once I get started it can snowball into something pretty awesome. And that makes me happy.
