Hi there! Thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet. I’m Davinia Hamilton, writer, actress, musician and lots of other things in between. I was born and raised on the small and sunny island of Malta, right in the middle of the Mediterranean sea – island of temples and ancient gods; of honey and olive oil.
I studied English at the University of Malta and graduated with a BA (Hons) in 2008. Meanwhile, I also studied for a diploma in interior design, and completed my Trinity Guildhall Associate Diploma in Speech and Drama, which means I’m a qualified actress and drama teacher.
After I graduated, I was a sub-editor for The Sunday Times of Malta for over two years, where I co-ordinated the Education and Society sections, and, together with a colleague, started the popular Homes and Design section. I’ve also written for many Maltese magazines and publications, including M, The Times Christmas, Health and Beauty, and Antiques and Restoration Supplements, Phase, MaltaToday and Platinum Love Magazine.
In August 2011, I decided to settle back into student life by doing my Masters degree… in Dublin, Ireland – a city I’d visited before and had fallen in love with. I did an M.Sc. in Applied Digital Media. I learnt all sorts of wonderful things like audio and video production, 3D animation, digital storytelling and multimedia programming – a dream come true for a creative media geek like me.
At the end of 2012, I moved to London, where I sought to gain more experience in media and publishing. I am currently spending the summer back in Malta, but intend to head out into the big bad world again come autumn.
This blog started in April 2010 as a space for me to write, write, write. It evolved into a space for creativity, positivity and lots of pretty photos. Being a blogger has given me the opportunity to get to know so many amazing people within the community. I am in awe of these people and the amazing work they release into the universe every single day.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing it, and it’s always a pleasure to hear from my readers, so please comment or send me an email at daviniahamilton (at) gmail (dot) com. You can also join me on Facebook and Twitter.
