BA (Hons) Fine Art, Newcastle University
My work has certainly taken a direction I didn’t expect it to, becoming more and more concerned with reflective materials, such as glitter, foils and iridescent tinsels and fabrics. I now like to work across a variety of media painting, photography, sculpture, collage and most recently, installation.
I want to achieve a show that I can look at and be proud of that represents my time at Newcastle University.
I think a degree show is important in giving other people a glimpse of what is to come and the elements of your practice you are most interested in taking forward. The most important part however, is that I want to have fun with it and produce something exciting for others.
My plans after graduation are to continue my artistic practice alongside my gallery assistant job. I am hoping the two will feed into each other with as much ease as they have whilst I’ve been a student.
