Education. It’s not just for schools… it’s for life!

It means Brisbane will be covered in a regal purple carpet of jacaranda flowers, rolled out by nature to give a royal welcome to our warmer (deathly hot) months.

But most importantly, it means the end of the academic year is upon us. The end of early morning classes, late night study sessions, assignment stress and lack of social life. For graduating high school students, the start of Term 4 means the end of something big, and the start of something even bigger. Read more

Here are some of my interesting and unique models I have enjoyed making whilst at QUT.
