So there you are the wonderful basics of me.
Always having a crazy passion for art & design and anything in between remotely creative, age 5 I would ask for my 100th box of Crayola pencils and the prettiest pencil-case out there. Moving from the quiet countryside village in Yorkshire, to the beautiful vibrant city of Sydney (thanks to a duel passport). Age 18 I decided I needed to escape, not in the sense that where I was from was bad, it’s not its beautiful also, but was just missing that something and after a visit to Australia the previous year to meet my cousins I fell in love, head over heals in love with Australia. Don’t get me wrong it gets extremely difficult at times to be soo far away from my family, but here I am still loving life in Sydney, in my 4th year of UNI (Bachelor of Design) and my part-time job.
Now Teal Ink Design is my baby , my fresh newborn crying non stop not really sure how to make it grow baby (I will be a great mother). But styling and designing Events in all areas is my call, who doesn’t love an awesome party and celebrations. I adore the idea of the different little worlds you can design and escape into, amazing food, flowers, lights, colours, music and the perfect company thrill me. Weddings, one of the most important days of your lives, something you remember and the idea you can create someone’s perfect memory, the atmosphere you design and invent is what I must do. After all who doesn’t want to work in their dream job?
The name Teal Ink Designs, if anyone knows me this doesn’t need explaining to why I have this name representing me. Teal, green, blue, aqua, teal, emerald, jade, teal, sage, olive, and pretty much any colour in between I am obsessed with and will probably own clothing in all those colours only. So here’s to all you #TEAL LOVERS (Is that a thing?…. let’s make it a thing).
My style is a little bit of everything, think bohemian meets elegance in the 1920s meets glamour meets edgy eerie meets nature and floral meets… ok so no exact label for my style (Maybe Neil Whitaker can name it for me) but basically is a balance of all the best things, and I like to create and design different styles, and that’s the beauty of design always something new and inventive out there.
Few of my top inspirational people out there are;
- Sibella Court (GET HER BOOKS!)
- Antoni Gaudi (GO TO BARCELONA)
- Makoto Azuma (JUST WOW.)
As a Textiles and Graphic major I am interested in fabrics and textures (obviously) and don’t get me started on some good designed packaging oooooof ;P I do a lot of my own Illustrations when I can outside of the UNI assessments that take up all existing time with the common occurrence of drawing botanic art. Also slowly getting more and more involved into typography…basically I want to do everything and anything and why not? That is what I think is great with event style and design it involves so many different areas.
Finally I am also a fresh student at Pearson’s School of floristry doing my Cert 111 and never did I realise how awesome floristry is, just another art form really instead of your paints use flowers, and who doesn’t want to play with flowers all day? highly recommend in taking the course if you even have the slightest bit of interest in that area.
So I give you Teal Ink Designs , Focussing on event styling and all the bits involved from food, music locations design textiles lifestyle …. you get the idea ? Somewhat focused on the magical world of creative design ! ENJOY (Please)
PS: Ok I am NOT and English major, yes it is my first… and only language and yes there is a tool called auto correct and spell check, but I do make up a lot of words and perhaps forget anything I learnt about grammar and the uses of the * ‘ * but I assure that you will still be able to read it and get the gist if not just look at all the pretty pictures I will post.
