About Me

Graduation | My boyfriend and I at a Coldplay gig | Where home is - St Francis Bay, South Africa
Graduation | My other half | Where I spent all my summers – St Francis Bay, South Africa

This portfolio showcases my work from school up till now.

My design style is illustrative and colourful.  I like to experiment with different mediums and I complete most of my designs using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.  My strengths are in digital print, photography and drawing.

I have a passion for fashion and would love an opportunity to work for a fashion-forward brand that promotes body positivity and self-love.

I also have a fashion blog which aims to give outfit inspiration to all women, but especially short, curvy ones like myself: www.dinkyfashionista.com
