Ah yes, the background bit!
I’ve always had a love of art, and making. After studying Fibre Art, I worked in textiles, mostly tapestry weaving and knitwear, I worked freelance in art, craft, as a maker, an educator and community facilitator. I then began blogging and digitally designing, eventually moving to working in design and management of blogs, websites, and social platforms. Realizing the potential of technology as a community tool, I took a break to study for an MA in Digital Culture. My research focused on facilitating community development, open source tech and digital literacy. How we use our tech, not just why!
I continued my work as a freelance creative specialist both in art and in digital media. To me, these worlds, art & tech, were far from colliding, but merging, like a self-Vucan mindmeld, helping me become the maker I am today. My passions include designing, learning, culture and sustainability, and the more I can mix this bag of licorice allsorts, the better.
I can also waffle, apologies. If you want to read more of my waffle, head over to my waffle blog, where I talk about things digital culture www.fitefuaite.com or find me in the usual social media places, links below.
