Lulu, 7 (Entry 1)

I did the sun moth project and wanted to design my own moth that camouflages and looks like it has owl eyes on its wings.

We moved house and I wanted to see what kind of birds lived around my new house, so I drew them and then made a graph so I could count them. We have lots of fairy wrens that visit. I love animals, birds and all creatures. I love drawing too, especially Wrens as my middle name is Wren!

This is my ‘Jelly-Boy’ costume for my school’s Book Week Parade! I passed on the message that we should help to protect sea creatures by not throwing plastic bags into the ocean where they can cause harm.

A machine to clean the ocean so that the sea animals, coral and sea can grow and not have litter and pollution ruining it.

My piece ‘Everything’ is inspired by Julia Landford and the way she is able to incorporate what she does in her everyday life. The middle part of my painting is Julia herself on a hike through Marramarang. I truly admire Julia’s ability to draw in aspects of her life- hobbies like hiking and photography into her work. The surrounding paintings of plants and bugs are native to Papua New Guinea and Australia. Drawing upon her native roots which I believe is important to carry through you life in what you do.

Family group

The Wynstra Family

The video is about the family dog, Cooper, being taken for a walk on a hill near our home. The dog finds some rubbish and wishes that the humans could keep the environment clean. The idea is for the council to use drone footage to track rubbish in the local parks and then use their resources in the areas that need it.

Wildcard: 18+ and/or interstate (outside ACT)

This piece of art was inspired by the idea of insects and the natural wonders of this world. I used my own style, which is most similar to manga or cartoons.
