So you may not have heard or seen the name Tegan Ptasznyk around but we are pretty confident that a lot of you would have heard or seen the name ‘filmgarden’ or maybe like this @filmgarden..ring any bells? If you’re on Instagram, chances are you’re following Tegan. She goes by the name ‘filmgarden’ quite simply because they’re two of her favourite things, film and gardens. Tegan is currently studying photography at uni and we can see why! She has a good eye for capturing images of beautiful scenery, flowers and her pet mice. Yes, that’s right, pet mice!
We recently sat down for a coffee and a few giggles with Tegan at The Stables Bar in Perth, and here’s what she had to say.
1. Who’s inspiring you creatively in Perth at the moment?
More like… who isn’t inspiring me lately?! Designers, stylists, makers, bakers, photo-takers…you all have a special place in my heart.
2. Winter or Summer?
How about Spring? I like Spring. Perth’s warm Winter sun is pretty great, though.
3. On your iPod?
Old school R&B. Lots of it. The good stuff. The real stuff. I’m pretty versatile though. I do enjoy soft, emotional songs just as much.
4. Current poison.
Quaint stores/vintage boutiques. I can’t seem to get enough of their unaffordable goodness.
5. What advice would you give your younger self?
You are the master of your own happiness.
6. Current favourite space in Perth to hang out.
I am really enjoying Perth’s cafe scene at the moment. I can’t say I have a particular favourite (yet), but I do like discovering new places. Also, if your cafe sells macarons, I’m there.
Thanks so much Tegan! We think your ace! If you’re not yet following Tegan on IG, check her out @filmgarden. Go join the other 8.5k admirers of her work! Here’s a little snippet of Tegan’s @filmgarden account…
