Hand crafted Award
The 2014 award is created by Dr Lienors Torre from the Faculty of Arts and Education. Lienors is a Lecturer in the School of Communication and Creative Arts and an outstanding artist with 20 years' experience in this medium.
Her inspiration for the design of the 2014 award comes from seashells and staircases. Shells are intimate forms that nurture and protect. Staircases suggest an accession and journey. Together these symbols manifest the perfect ingredients to embrace throughout life and education.
