'Fitzroy High School' by McBride Charles Ryan Architecture + Interior Design
All the very best to Joyce Pang who won the Student category, a fellow student from iscd Colour Design Diploma 2009. Her prize, a glass Trophy from Dulux and $1000.
Congratulations also to Lisa Nolan (Askew), Sharon Elliott, Liz Maher, Heather Meade, and Beverley Duncan. The seven of us, all students of iscd - past and present - were the majority of the finalists for the category - Student Years 1 -6. Apologies to Beverley, I don't seem to have a photo of your entry.
Up to 2007, creativity had taken a backseat for a while and I have only started doing larger projects as I now have some room to do them. Sewing is my first love I suppose you could say, always wanting to be in the fashion industry from a young age, but I only bring the sewing machine out once in a blue moon now.
Magazines are a drug. With subscriptions to quite a few, ideas endlessly flow now. Finding the time to fulfil the 'need' to work in the industry while working fulltime is a juggling act.
Thought I might see if there is a way to get some 'work experience' with a stylist, somewhere, somehow!!
The interior of the gallery was fantastic with each wall being covered by entries. The wait staff were all dressed in painters overalls with a different colour bandana and the serving trays were the shape of an artist's paint palette. Each tray had a small foam roller with a splotch of colour as if painted by the roller. Very 'arty' for the occassion.
