Hi I’m Winnie!
Diamond Canopy began back in 2008, during my final year at university studying History of Art. My early posts featured a lot of mirror outfit shots, sharing my student purchases, and blogging my daily thoughts.
The blog has evolved a lot since then. It’s been a lot of fun, allowed me to stay creative and I’ve had some amazing opportunities, become a better writer, a keen photographer, and I’ve made some awesome life-long friends.
Here you’ll find me writing about my favourite things including trips to art galleries, my illustrations, food adventures, Chinese culture, holidays, and trips back to my favourite city, Hong Kong. I love visual culture so pictures are an important part of my blog and I have a huge love for art, illustration, and photography.
During the day I work in content for a PR agency, dabble in a little bit of freelance social media management and the occasional illustration. You’ll find me sharing pictures and inspiration on Instagram, doodling away on The Winnie Project and making things for my little print shop, or chatting away on Twitter. Come and say hi!
Frequently asked questions
What’s with the blog name?
Essentially, I am a big Incubus fan and ‘Diamond Canopy’ is mentioned in this track to describe the night sky. It’s followed me from ancient MySpace accounts and MSN messenger and it’s stuck.
What camera do you use?
Most of the time, I’m shooting on a Fujifilm X-T2 with my trusty 35mm 1.4 lens.
