Horse and Rider Digital black and white photograph Horses are a compassionate animal that for a long time have been known as ‘gentle giants.’ They are herd orientated, making them very friendly and attached to both other horses and people. My work explores the concept that at its finest, rider and horse are joined not by tack, but by trust. Each is totally reliant upon the other. Each is the selfless guardian of the other's very well being. Lilydale Heights College

Whimsical Modern Twist to Elven Armour Textiles The focus of my work is elves and their elegant attire. I experimented with different fabrics and designs. My focus was mainly on representing elves (human sized, not like pixies or gnomes) and how they are perceived, while still adding a touch of intricacy and modern styles to the old depictions.

Myself Acrylic paint on canvas I have thoroughly explored portraiture and the expressions and traits of individuals. I chose myself as the subject to put under microscope as I am able to easily identify with myself and capture the expression the way I wanted to. My artwork personally articulates the moments of contentment and peace of being a in happy place mentally and physically. Oxley Christian College

Unnecessarily Serendipitous Acrylic on canvas Upon researching the Day of the Dead celebration for the central theme of my folio, I found inspiration within vibrant colours and the intricate patterning on the faces. The wind like aura sweeping throughout the two paintings represents the going and passing of life and of loved ones however not in a sorrowful way but in a way that is celebratory and cheerful, quite a beautiful way of thinking.

What's Lurking in the Shadows? Speedpaint, projection Imagination is a big part of people’s lives and it is not just for young children who do not yet understand the world they live in. It can lead even the most mature of adults to have revelations. My works explore how we create fantasy worlds to escape our own world that we live in and the creation of an altered reality to contradict isolation or to escape a bad situation.

Untitled Digital print, aluminium foil, wooden board My work was inspired by the emotions and feelings towards life and how people react to them. I focussed on drowning, death and covering your true emotions. I wanted the photos to be dark and gloomy to depict the themes I choose and wanted to use light to create strong contrast, to emphasise the themes of death. Billanook College

Captured Inside a Frame Fineliner with watercolour paint on watercolour paper I explored concept of age and skin. I wanted to show in my work that aging and having wrinkles isn't ugly, but interesting. I also showed a lot of playing around with colour and line, to portray the feeling or emotion in a person's features using different tones and lines to create the character in his or hers natural form.

Night Terrors Acetate, pins, watercolour, fine liner Night Terrors is a piece created from the meaning of dreams. I investigated what certain things mean when you dream about them. I put a mix of colourful and twisted images throughout the piece and I leave it up to the viewer's interpretation of what they mean. Each image refers to a dark meaning that belongs in your nightmares. Billanook College

Lawrence, Woman and Me Oil paint on ply wood Both works revolve around the idea of change - the diversity ultimately created from one's genes and their exposure to unique environments and the deindividualisation that can sometimes occur as we move throughout the education system. Billanook College

Whole Plywood, handmade paper The piece is a discussion of community and the connectedness between people, and the essential coexistence of people despite the psychosocial factors which make individuals unique. Billanook College

The Last Supper Paper, charcoal and graphite pencils My theme is 'Influential People Throughout History’. I’ve always had a passion for history, whether it was my family’s background, where I would constantly look at photos from the past, or just asking questions. My folio is a journey through time, where anyone can explore historical figures that have created a stringboard of how society is shaped. Lilydale High School

Achievement Hunter Vs Markers and watercolour Inspired by my love for video games, my folio followed the desire to pay tribute to both the games I love and the YouTube presenters known to play them. Throughout the year I explored different mediums and YouTuber presenters, leading me to dedicate my final artworks to members of the online group Achievement Hunter. Lilydale High School

Love Digital photographic print Emotions are a constant presence in our lives. We experience all types of emotions, being happy or sad, fear, anger, disgust, trust and love. I want to see the different feelings we go through in everyday life. The thing that I find fascinating about emotions is how they can affect a person; how emotions can change so quickly depending on what has happened to them or their surroundings.

Nature Formed Glass bottle, leaves, string, Hessian cloth Flowers and leaves are all around us. For most people they are a constant presence. The structure of the flower is actually a really complex thing, with lots and lots of exquisite details. My work explores all the aspects and elements that make up a flower and a leaf, their often short timeframe, their form, their beauty and eventual demise and their role in our day-to-day lives.
