I recall childhood memories of afternoons spent with grandpa at the dining table, sipping on milo and drawing on notepads with a ballpoint pen. He loved to draw (mostly trees) and I was intrigued – I think my love for drawing grew from there!
I actually took the long way round to get into design. After graduating from business school and working in non-creative fields for a period of time, I couldn’t deny the fact that I wasn’t completely satisfied. I was doing a bit of illustration on the side and dreamt of making creative work my full-time hustle. Finally, I discovered Shillington and made my jump into the world of design.
I recently started a new Instagram account called @visualnoms, where I post illustrated recipes and food-inspired content. This is a personal project that combines my love for drawing and food!
There will be hurdles of every sort but always look on the bright side – to be challenged is a good thing. And don’t be afraid to put yourself and your work out there.
