    Art is a world of expression and communication of emotion. Design plays with the aesthetic and function of the space. Nevertheless, both follow a process in order to come to the final outcome. Art and Design are fields that deal with creative skills and imagination. There are no limits for an artist or a designer. An artist in order to create has been inspired from a topic, from his personal psychology of the time his doing the artwork or from anywhere he believes that express his personality. On the other hand, a designer follows a process in which he indicates the problem of the design and through the design research he gives the solution.

    The McGrath foundation has given me the opportunity to host a high tea in memory of the cofounder Jane McGrath and anyone who has lost their battle to breast cancer. The tea is set to commence on the 15th of May, I am hoping to encourage the small community to get actively involved. Each year around Australia high teas are set up to honor and remember anyone who has lost their battle, the day is also about having a good time and donating to the foundation to help raise money to go towards cures and other preventions for the disease. I want to prepare foods within a reasonable budget but make them creative, fun but still classy as it is a high tea.…
