Abstract: In this article, I show how I enhanced my understanding of my practice as an artist, researcher and teacher using a self-study approach in my recently completed Master of Technology (M.Tech.) dissertation in Graphic Design. As part of my M.Tech. research, I conceptualised and developed a creative teaching tool that I named ‘PicTopics’. PicTopics are palm-sized cards with pictographic illustrations similar to street signage. I used these PicTopics in a variety of ways, but essentially as creative prompts to foster a variety of creative educational skills within the university, and personally as a tool to generate my own artistic expression at a deeper level. I demonstrate the re-storying of my learning through writing about these artworks as visual indicators of my values, personal and professional growth. I show how the paintings reflect my experiences and perceptions of my youth, their effect on my adult self, my individuality and ultimately my teaching self.
