RESUME BIANCA PEREIRA
My passion for the arts in all forms is what drives me to apply for this position I have worked in the arts for over 15 years, and always with the same objective and that was to be able to pass on the gift of art, whether it be through artworks and props for theaters, sculptures and painting for public arts or through teaching at Tafe and most recently disability communities, and pop up classrooms.
My philosophy has always been “don’t let the lack of correct materials or lack of ability stop you from creating, harness what's missing and a new creation will form.
Some of my best ideas have come from this belief.
I enjoy the interaction with different people through my artwork and putting a smile on their face gives me a small sense that I got a little something right
Illustrating children's books has been a dream of mine for a long time and I ask that you allow me the opportunity to stretch my imagination and hopefully give you something beautiful and useful, that will once again be enjoyed by others
