This may sound cheesy, but, it started in year 10 art. Our class had to create a poster against violence. My poster was of a dagger piercing an anatomical heart that I had hand drawn. From there I continued to practice drawing in the many art books I had lying around.

But when year 11 came around, I discovered the wonders of Photoshop.

With Photoshop the possibilities are endless and I’m always learning; just last weekend I discovered how to do a disintegration effect. Now, most of my art consists of Photoshop. Photoshop is definitely an investment but I think that anyone can use it, whether they are ‘arty’ or not.

Through my immense love of art, I have had many opportunities to get my work ‘out there’. From exhibitions to murals in shops, I’ve done it. And I couldn’t of been more thankful for all of the opportunities I’ve had so far.

I may only be a 17 year old, but I do believe I have some wisdom (and wits) up my sleeve. I am a strong believer in the saying, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know”.

To think that a friend I made in year 10 English could change my life forever. You never know it’s going to happen, until it happens.
