"The day the earth danced" is a narrative based on the true story of sea lion family off the coast of Kaikoura who lost their home to the recent earthquake. They embark on an adventure to find a new home. My book seeks to rebuild resilience in young people after a natural disaster by encouraging them to stay connected. The protagonist, Toa, shows them how to be brave and embrace every situation.
As a designer, i have learnt a lot about how important it is to understand exactly who you're designing for. I have explored and researched experience design, play theory, illustration and editorial design. My practice reflects my passion for people's well being and the New Zealand environment.
