About Me

Liverpool, United Kingdom
My work has developed a lot over the 3 years I've studied for my degree. It has evolved into a body of work that deals with the human form as an environment. I've mapped and explored my own body inside and out in many ways through print, drawing and various media as a type of research to address self identity

Todays lecture..

Today our lecture was about the 1997 exhibition 'Sensation' which consisted of works by the YBA's. The show generated controversy in London and New York due to the inclusion of images of Myra Hindley and the Virgin Mary, respectively. The show consisted of work from the collection of Chalres Saatchi. It was criticised for attempting to boost the value of the work through being shown in institutions and public museums.

I loved learning about these artists and their work, its the era in art im most interested in...I find some of the artists such as Sara Lucas fascinating. The work is bold and has a real beauty to it.

I love when our class becomes really split in opinions on art such as this. We have a very varied age range in our class and often it becomes a really interesting discussion on what should be considered art and what shouldnt.

Welcome to my blog! :)

This page is primarily a documentation of my art work I create. I'm a BA Fine Art, Mixed Media Student currently in my final year of my degree.

My work deals with ideas of the fragility of the human condition and often consists of images of my own body. I tend to work with materials that reflect the delicacy of the human form such as stitch and fabrics. My drawing style i like to describe as a "nervous" line, which also ties in with the themes of all my work.
