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

Artist Books fair - part 2

So here is my submission for the artists books fair. Its hardly upto standard but i only had 3 days to make it (well i technically had longer but i only started making it 3 days ago...I've been busy you know) and alot of things went wrong for example:

1. Its a known fact I cant count. So measuring and folding to mm precision isnt my strong point however this is key to making an artists book work.
2. Printers obviously have a vendetta against me. I originally made this book on wednesday and the inkfell off the page. Quite literally started crumbling off the page. So I had to reprint the book. May I add it has continued to fall off the page on this version but its less obvious.

3. Time restraints mean less detail. The book is rather minimalistic. I would have liked to incorporate some machine sewing to tie in with my other work.

I'm bored of explaining my failure here some pictures:
(Apologies for the quality...The lighting in my room is awful I tried everything this is the best I could do)

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.
