This fun photo of myself was taken by my friend, Terri Snowden.
My name is Elaine Ang.
I am a freelance graphic designer and photographer studying in my second year towards my Bachelor of Arts and Media.
I am Malaysian-Chinese and I have lived most of my years in the wonderful city of Nelson, New Zealand. A place where I am free to go for walks in the promising sunshine and sit in a humble cafe to enjoy a cup of tea.
As a young girl, my childhood was filled with creativity. I loved to make things. From birthday cards, to miniature clothing, to jewellery.
I have grown to appreciate the beauty in simple design. To me, less is more.
"Less, but better - because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity."
