My name is Anastazja Michniewicz, I’m 26 years old and I live in Tralee, Co. Kerry, Ireland.
I think that my passion for art and creativity first appeared when I was little. My father still tells me stories about my artistic endeavours... One time he left me and my siblings at home just to go to the shop around the corner, before he left us he gave us warning "When I come back I want to see the walls in the condition I left them in!" he said. He left us some paper to draw on and some markers. We were always listening to our dad, as much as kids can listen anyway. He came back home and saw everything but walls, covered in butterflies, flowers and zigzags. I saw his angry face and stood there crying as he gave out to us but all I could think of saying was "You said not to draw on the walls, so we didn't..." I think we got away with it, at the end of the day the walls were untouched.
I did art in secondary school but was very limited to what I could do. I always loved sketching and painting. My favourite class was Technical Graphics (later changed to DCG) where we did lots of cool technical drawings and 3D projects in Solid Works on the computers. It was exciting, that was the first time I played with 3D graphics and I loved it!
After my Leaving Certificate I decided to pursue a Computing with Games Development course in the Institute of Technology Tralee, Ireland. In first year of that course we got introduced to Graphic and Web Design. I loved manipulating graphics in Adobe Photoshop and design logos in Illustrator. That was where I got inspired! I loved every aspect of HTML and CSS, the idea of typing up code to create a visually appealing website blew my mind! I thought it was the best and the easiest thing to do in the world and I was surprised that people don't own their personal websites. I think that anyone with a profession should have one.
Unfortunately, the course I did in college didn’t cover much of Graphic and Web Design, just four modules in first year of a four year course. I learned a good deal, from JustBasic programming language to Java, C# and XNA. I did a lot of SQL and Autodesk 3DS Max. Even now I still refresh my memory and try to code or design something in those programs.
When I finished college, I was still willing to pursue Graphic and Web design so I decided to attend a Digitl Web Design training course in ETB which ended in September 2014. Currently I am building my portfolio. So far it is going good because, well… Here I am!

I'm very excited to announce that I have another website project underway for Mr Conor O'Donovan. And here is my idea for the logo/header based on the business cards that Mr O'Donovan has made for himself already...
What have you been up to? Because I've done this... DMArchitects.ie
New website design for David Moriarty & Associates Architects.
I have learned so much during this project it's actually crazy but I'm feeling happy and accomplished. With loads of ideas and criticism I think we pulled off a very decent job.
I have been working on more cards so head to the gallery and check them out. Don't forget to message me and we see what I can do for you. ( Printing not included ).
Ps. I know it isn't Christmas yet but these are the designs I curently work on for a friend ;)
