Aya received her MA in English Language and Literature in 2012. She likes dancing, traveling, cycling and spending time with her pets.

Camie Lyons is an Australian artist from Sydney, known for her unique and playful sculptures and drawings. As a little girl, Lyons dreamed of becoming a ballerina and an artist. Eventually, her dreams came true – she became both. First a dancer, then a visual artist. At the age of 16, she left the country and started her dance studies. She worked as a professional dancer for more than 10 years. Lyons was a full time member of the company Storm in a Teacup Dance Theatre, and performed extensively throughout Victoria. She studied Butoh and Laban Movement Techniques at Soros Foundation in Bulgaria.

However, the artist’s passion for making things won, and she enrolled at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne, where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Art in Sculpture. Later on, she moved to Sydney, and received her Master of Fine Art in Sculpture from College of Fine Arts in Paddington. She has worked as a full time artist ever since.
