Final year project
FEELINGS (a book for children) [Read more]
FEAR - Feelings (a book for children)
For my Final Major Project, I am illustrating a children's book to help them to identify and separate their feelings. This is the double-page spread for the emotion 'Fear.' I used printing techniques such as relief and lino, as well as mark making with ink and collaging. These elements layered up adds depth and texture to the page. It was then digitally refined and text added on top.
JOY - Feelings (a book for children)
The double-page spread for the emotion of 'Joy.' Bright colours such as orange and yellow were used, with layers of collage and bright shapes and forms to visually convey the feeling.
The final piece for the 'Connections' postcard project. This piece is an abstract exploration of the physical brain when suffering from a mental illness. The neurons and the brains physical state are directly connected to our mood and behaviour. These changes show proof of otherwise invisible illnesses, giving validity and support to people suffering. This piece was created with watercolour and layered with fineliner and metallic ink.

Drowning in Plastic
This is my personal response to the 'Plastics' project, looking at the damage done to the environment and in particular the ocean due to plastic waste. The entire piece is created out of elements of plastic, the obvious plastic trapping the fish but also the 'sea' is bits of painted plastic ironed and layered together. This is a comment on not only the obvious plastic rubbish in the sea but also bringing light to the invisible microplastics that we cannot see but are also polluting the ocean. I want this piece to make the viewer think about their own plastic consumption and the consequences of their actions.

the Loss of Identity
For the Fine Art specialism project 'Loss,' I explored the loss of identity. The piece can be interpreted in whichever way is most personal to the viewer. The loss of childhood/innocence, identity change to fit in with societal situations and standards, the effect of social media and the beauty industry on our image identity and many more. Our personal identity has been lost and warped in today's society and people are finding it harder to know who they are anymore.
