Question: What do you get when you cross an architect, a maker, an educator, a passion for design and a love of detail and delivery?
Creative creative; on time time-management; on budget budget-management; very public and popular, popular public events.
In other words, If... creativity
Imagination, resourcefulness, responsiveness: a strategic vision that is creative and nuanced.
It’s events, installations, activations and environments; but not as you know them.
Depending on the hour of the day, and the day of the week, you will find Bec in the midst of event design and direction, theatre/set design, teaching or construction of amusing and engaging creations and activations that bring life to otherwise plain places.
She consistently delivers successful, high calibre events and campaigns including, ‘Stirling Autumn Garden Festival’, ‘Stirling Spin’, ‘Land of the Long Lunch’ and the award-winning ‘Stirling Laneways’.
Bec is a ‘wide achiever’ with a curious and unique skill-set; just as comfortable with a spreadsheet and database, as with paint brushes, a circular saw, cable-ties and papier-mâché! She operates with big-picture creative vision whilst being simultaneously grounded and pragmatic, focusing on the fine detail.
She has a voice for social media (despite deep-down love/hate feelings towards Facebook), and now runs social media platforms for several organisations.
Bec has worked as an architect (Troppo Architects, Tanner & Associates, Howard Choy & Associates) and theatre designer including productions for the Adelaide Cabaret Festival (2012) and Adelaide Festival of Arts (2012).
She is also an award-winning educator, and continues to teach (part-time) at the University of Adelaide in the discipline of Architectural Engineering.
Bec is a proud resident of the Adelaide Hills, active in her local community, and in 2016 was awarded an Australia Day ‘Civic Award’.
