Me and Fine Art

I might as well start off by saying hello as this is my first blog post on here! So hello!

I thought I might tell you about myself and my journey within fine art and how it has become a major part of my life and hopefully will still be a major part in the future.

I started my Fine Art degree in 2018, after dropping out of studying History and Eastern European culture at the University of Nottingham. Previous to this I had studied Fine Art at college and wanted to pursue it in some degree for the rest of my life however completing an art degree was not what I initially had in mind. I can tell you now that I am extraordinarily happy and grateful that I decided to take the plunge and apply to do fine Art at the Greater Brighton Metropolitan College.

The first year of my degree revolved around mr getting to grips with new practices and mediums, and also focused on global issues such as environmentalism and sustainability as themes to inform my work. This led to me creating an abundance of printmaking work of which I really enjoyed but haven’t progressed further with.


In the second year I primarily did painting and drawing as my main medium at first however I then moved onto installation, collage and 3-D works after finding that my paintings were being as well received as I initially thought. Through this changing in medium I have found that installation work and 3-D sculpture have really impacted the way I do my work now with them being the primary mediums that I work with now in my third year Through this changing in medium I have found that installation work and 3-D sculpture have really impacted the way I do my work now with them being the primary mediums that I work with now in my third year.


My current practice revolves around the pharmaceutical industry and hospitals as well as looking at the structure and packaging of medication, and how we as humans have become totally reliant on medication as a society. Artists such as Damian Hirst, Mark Quinn, Annette Messager, Susie Hamilton and Susan Aldworth have really influenced my creative process and have become a great inspiration to refer back to.

At current, I am preparing for my degree show, gallery bookings and graduation as well as preparing for a role in teaching in September 2021.
