Culture & Heritage, 2024
My profound love and appreciation for the arts and heritage stemmed from my upbringing in Bowral, where the landscape and culture deeply influenced me. This love for art pushed me to pursue creative endeavours throughout high school which led me to join an Arts Enrichment Program. The program enhanced my love for the arts through its projects where I created various murals for the school.
Beyond my academic studies, I constantly seek to expand my creative skills, where I practice painting, embroidery and wood carving. Such activities are not only a passion of mine but have also helped in refining my hand skills.
Commencing my studies at The University of Canberra, the Culture and Heritage program proved to be a perfect fit for my creative interests and allowed me to pursue my passion in becoming a furniture conservator. Set to graduate in 2024, this academic journey has led to me to learn a plethora of knowledge in the heritage and conservation field, which I am eager to carry on post-studies.
In addition to my academic experiences, I work as a heritage student based in heritage construction remediation within Canberra. I also work as a junior conservator with ICS. Both of these roles have equipped me with hands-on experience and allowed me to build my interests in the heritage conservation field.
