A health protective behaviour infographic regarding sunlight exposure that was created for the Psychology of Health unit

I submitted this infographic as a final assignment for a Psychology of Health unit in 2021. The objective of the assignment was to create and infographic that informed on a specific health behaviour and was potentially focused in a specific demographic group. The content of the infographic needed to be based on critical research done through the unit and we were encouraged to use Adobe Spark to create it. The infographic was selected as one of the best two submissions in the class, and both of them will be featured in Swinburne's 2022 Psychological Sciences Research Showcase. The topic was very personal to me, having become a mother not long before studying the unit and having worked in the past with people who had experienced Post-natal depression. The assignment was also very novel in encouraging the use of technology and creativity, as well as maintaining the grounding in critical research and accuracy that most traditional assignments do. Hopefully, the infographic encourages other teachers and students to try their hand at creative ways to make their research and data more accessible to wider audiences. It was a challenging but fun project and the Adobe Spark software is super intuitive and easy to use.

I created my infographic for an assessment task for PSY30001. It was a new assessment to replace the traditional essay, and I found it not only beneficial to my learning, but also really enjoyable.
This work was created in Adobe Spark.

'Codependency' is a comic I did for one of my classes last year, based on my mental health, gender and relationship with my parents at the time. I drew it in clip studio paint on my iPad over a couple of weeks, all the lettering and panels done by hand and inspired by the work of Nagata Kabi. It isn't reflective of my current life, and I would like to follow it up with my now improved relationship with my parents, but it's still a very personal project as the
first comic I'd ever done.

When drag queen Veronica Sparks is found dead in a bathtub one night, a private detective investigates the events leading up to the murder. As he questions Veronica's 'friends', he soon realises that the stories the drag queens tell him don't quite seem to match up. A HUGE thanks to everyone who contributed in making this film during the rough year of 2020. Despite all the obstacles we faced during several lockdowns, set and several other limitations we somehow managed to still make this film! A huge thanks to all our incredible actors who were our classmates and were willing to get all dolled up for us for the sake of comedy.

I made this for photomedia - visual art diploma I love the concept of Wabi Sabi and nature
how everything is so beautiful, organic and imperfect. There is beauty to imperfectness.
I love to focus on the up close details of tree trunks,
and the idea of tree spirits.

This short film was made to showcase how great my friend Aleks Sinclair is. Her road hasn’t been easy, but it’s inspiring and I wanted to share that. I hope you can all see how inspiring she is.

This is a watercolour painting I did in Year 12 (2020) which I really loved so I scanned and digitally edited it later in my Photography and Digital Art classes for my Diploma in Visual Arts course. I tried a lot of different edits and effects but I really liked the way the saturation accentuated certain colours in the painting while still being original. The blur of the top also draws your eyes toward the detailed foreground and feels a bit more mysterious.
 
I added a vertical film grain to it, as well as mirroring the painting (gave it nice symmetry). It fit because the middle of the painting lined up exactly with the little face rock in the middle. It looks very different from the composition of the original painting but I really like how it turned out. 
This is a print I made of a skull in the Printmaking unit of my Diploma of Visual Arts which I edited. I added a dotted film grain aswell as a transparent rainbow colour over it. I really like how the dotted film gave it a more comic book style texture.

Environment Painting - I used Photoshop to create this digital painting. It was made for my Digital Arts Techniques class. I wanted the piece to evoke a sense of eeriness and supernaturalism. My awesome teacher, Graham Bridge, offered me a lot of help and guidance throughout the process of creating this artwork, and taught me a lot about perspective, which helped me to achieve my desired outcome for this painting. Dancing snails - this is a personal project that I made for fun. It was made in Adobe Animate. Happy - This is personal project that I made for fun.
The line art was done in Adobe Illustrator and the colouring was done in Photoshop.
This work was created with Adobe Animate, Illustrator, and Photoshop.

I made the drawings for personal reasons and the animation for TAFE. The first drawing was made
using Procreate and the other two with Ibispaint, while the animation was simply made with FlipaClip.

I made two story reels based on the written work by Elise Cara. To translate it into the film medium I created the story boards in Photoshop and then put it together with
a scratch track in Premier Pro to show the pacing. 
This work was created with Adobe Photoshop, and Premiere Pro.

This was a piece of work I did for the Implement Design Solutions class. The assessment was to create a looping animation. There was also the plan to submit this to the loop de loop competition but unfortunately this years topic had not been posted by the time we had to do the assignment. I am a tennis player and am very passionate about the sport so wanted to incorporate this into my animation. I am also a fan of action anime so wants to replicate the anime style. Essentially mixing a few of my passions all into the one animation. This was probably one of the more ambitions projects I have taken on. There was a lot of learning throughout the process, a lot of mistakes made along the way, but I was really happy with how the end result came out.
