Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Tami Michie

Art Director

South Africa
Being a creative I believe I have far too many. I love new experiences, weather it is trying out a new coffee shop, testing the brakes on corners go-karting or climbing the face of a building to take that perfect shot. Although I don't get round to it very often I find illustrating to be very therapeutic, whether that be ink, charcoal or paint. Love photography but over the years of shooting am just convinced I simply like pretty things. The fashion, the make up, the set up, the location, the drama, the action, the craft, the result. Being active constantly helps the mind, I enjoy road running, cycling and yoga.
