about Tet

Maria Theresa “Tet” Kelly is a Geelong-based multi-disciplinary creative in areas of graphic design, web design, visual arts and communication arts. Prior to migrating to Australia in 2012, Tet was an academic professional teaching journalism, English as a Second Language, communication arts and research in a Philippine university. She holds a Bachelor of Journalism and a Master of Arts in Teaching English from the Philippines. In 2020, she completed an Advanced Diploma of Graphic Design at the Gordon TAFE, Geelong.

As an artist, her technique revolves around descriptive writing, using typography as an artform and creating candid portrait photography to tell people’s stories. She uses a mix of realism and abstraction in her traditional paintings and digital illustrations. Her attention to details serves her well when creating layouts and web design projects.

Tet’s lived experience of being of Filipino heritage, a female and caring for people with disability has enriched her creative skills. Tet volunteered and worked for her local neighbourhood house in Grovedale and therefore has a deep appreciation of grass roots community development, local connections and everyday artists.

In 2021, the Gordon awarded her the Student of the Year Award 2020 (formerly Princeps Shield) at the Gordon. This award is presented to a student who has demonstrated outstanding achievement in their studies in 2020 from a pool of over 11,000 students from all fields of studies.
