Past A Level work, which I might develop and explore again in the future.
Last Tuesday, I had the pleasure of going to the sculpture department’s 2nd year show. Their private view was a great success. I felt like a proud big sister. Everyone’s work was of such a high standard, and the set up […]
1 week to go before putting up my degree show! I don’t graduate until July, but I feel like my time as a student will be finished next week. It’s such a strange feeling. I don’t know how I feel […]
While attending an art college at Carmarthen School of art, I have access to lots of different art departments. One of which I use quite regularly. The photography department. Getting my work photographed in a white studio with professional lighting […]

Something I’ve been really considering with my work this term is how to display pieces. My degree show is coming up really fast and it’s forcing me to consider different ways to display my work. For this piece in particular […]
A project I have planned coming soon, using petri dishes, was influenced by Sonja Baumel’s work where she lays her body into a large petri dish (acting like the canvas) and lets the bacteria from her body grow (acting like […]
I really enjoy working with organic materials in my practice. There’s something almost quite wrong about it, as though I’m breaking some kind of rule or something. Hair is something I’ve found myself working with this year. This is one […]
I’m currently in the last term of university at Carmarthen School of Art, and this term I’ve been focusing on working with domestic, every day objects. My aim is to experiment with them and try to make them useless in […]

I am a fine art level 6 student operating in Ipswich, Suffolk. I have experimented with many different practices, techniques and materials over the past few years of fine art education. My current work is based around sculpture and landscapes.
