My name is Anwyn. The pronunciation takes a few goes, / ‘uhn - w (h) en/ is how it’s meant to be said, but I normally explain it by saying that it sounds like ‘Arwen’ from Lord of the Rings but with an extra ‘n‘. It’s a little unique, but then so am I so I suppose we make a good team. There’s only so much you can know about a person by their first name however, so allow me to share a few things about myself.
I was born on the 27th of May, 1998 in the sleepy town of Armidale, NSW. I have lived in Brisbane for 17 years now and call it home. Throughout the years, my creative tendencies have manifested themselves in various ways. Firstly in scrapbooking with mum when I was little, then in painting and drawing for art projects, then to starting a tiny card making business and making some pocket money off some blessed relative willing to donate a few dollars for some second-rate greeting cards in the name of “supporting the next generation”. At this point, my work evolved from cutting and gluing to strumming and singing, when my sister and I decided to form a band and DIY our debut EP. It was during this time that I came into possession of a DSLR camera. My first official client as a photographer asked me to join her in her business as a retail renegade and social media aficionado almost immediately. The work I’ve received from and as a result of my employment there has grown and stretched me, both creatively and personally, and has led to many opportunities to work with some pretty spectacular trail-blazers in and around Brisbane. The rest, as they say, is history.
Doctor Who. Seriously, ask me anything. I dare you.
