About Me

My photo
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

So this whole family photographs/ research has been leading me somewhere.

The Manchester Artist Books fair is coming up and I wanted to create a book including all these elements. I intend to use this new fold that I mastered today.

The Turkish map fold:

Katherine Venturelli - 'Lunar Journey'

I  intend to use this fold to create a book that can be explored by working through images of family trees, documents, drawings, portraits etc. 
Possibly in a similar structure to this book:

Today I completed a section of my family tree. My Grandmothers' (Mother's Mother) Paternal line. (THE CORRECT LABELS ARE SO CONFUSING)I intend to use this image within the book
Some other images I've aquired:

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.
