Aiming for the best outcomes and adjusting them to suit the budget, by maintaining a colour reference, and adjusting the types of materials used.


I enjoy this part of the design process, both the initial discussions of the brief, proposals,construction drawings and consulting with other professionals prior to implementation, onsite supervision, and maintaining schedules and budget.


I am able to sketch an idea out, detail, and draw persectives.

DRAFTING, manual and CAD

I received a CREDIT PASS when I completed my Diploma, which included 3 years of architectural drafting, and building construction, which at the time was equivalent to an Architectural Drafting Certificate. I draw freehand and paint, and combine freehand and drafting in my drawings to develop a proposal. I have also taught myself AutoSketch v.8 which is a simplified version of CAD full program. I have also studied CAD at Tafe. 


I have a well developed sense of Design, that I continually develop, by studying my surroundings and being aware of developments in many areas of life. I love to design.
