About

I have just completed a 3 year degree and now hold a BA with Honours in Photographic Art.  In addition to that I also hold a Foundation Degree in Art, Media and Design which covered fine art, photography, sound and moving image 3d art and fashion.  I majored in Fine Art.

I have an understanding of photography and have worked with large format, medium format and 35mm analogue cameras and an array of digital photographic capture devices from the D-SLR to iphone cameras.  I have developed my own negatives, both black and white and colour, in all film formats, and have printed images from these negatives.  I have also used Photoshop as a method of post production for digital images.

I am interested in all types of art, from scrap booking and card making, creating jewellery, painting, drawing and photography and am currently undertaking my own “Art Challenge 2015” where I am working on art journals, predominantly Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith and Anti-Journal by David Sinden and Nikalas Catlow, however I can see this branching out into creating my own free-style journal before too long!

I currently am a volunteer for a local art project that is looking at art in the community and the creation of an art space that can be used as a hub for artists and community to engage in art practices and learning.

    Hey, I saw your blog about the exhibition of Damien Hirst. I was just wondering what did you fell when you saw the work: Mother and child divided? Did it shock you?

      Hi! Thanks for your message! I knew what to expect befrore I saw the work as I have done extensive research on Damien Hirst, but in reality nothing an quite compare to actually seeing the work in person. I was really fascinated with the Mother and child Divided and couldnt take my eyes off it…there was something fairly mesmerizing about it and peaceful too. It was no more gross or shocking than those dissection models you would have in schools! It was an amazing exhibition and if you ever get the chance to see any of Damien’s work, go see it! You won’t be disappointed! 😀

    Thank you very much! I am doing a school assignment about this work. Maybe you have some background information for me? I would really appreciate that!

    hello. i am interested in your dissertation on the “selfie” as i am curently in my final year of uni and doing my dissertation on the selfie! would be great to get some insight or any advice that you might have! its a long road ahead and everything helps. thanks

      Hi! I can share some thoughts and advice, no worries! First thing I would say is to look at your research material. My lecturer seemed to think I would struggle with writing a dissertation on the selfie as not much had been written about the subject, but I found this not to be the case, magazine articles and blog posts helped with my research loads as everyone seems to have an opinion on the selfie. I included history of the self portrait too which tied it all in nicely, from the start of self portraiture and daguerrotypes to photobooths in fairs, how people like to document themselves at events and places, and how technology has evolved to make it all the more available to people to do this. If you would like any further help then let me know! I will be publishing my dissertation here soon and my further research methods too! x

    Thank you
