I’m a mixed media artist who works with a mixture of digital, photography, 3D sculpting, installation and lighting. The way my practice works is, that I make something digitally, and then I think about it in 3D, but I can also start 3D, photograph it and then work on it in a digital form. Everything is made to possibly be used for something else. I take many steps, turning one piece into another. I like my work to keep evolving and flowing, representing life. I consider my work a visual, cathartic diary of my life, intertwining my emotions, moods, experiences, and philosophies. This year I have focused on a new direction still inspired by Jellyfish. I started the year with a new technique of turning canvases into stencils, and I have also been booking cyanotype and screen print, metal, Digital Media Workshop and hackspace workshops to strengthen my skills and really bring together a multi- media installation piece. I have learnt a lot and have really been able to develop my practice and create a piece with lots of components and feel I have time managed well with all of this. Exploring the use of lighting and shadows, and repurposing parts of my artworks from level 5 and in general is a big focus in my practice. Choosing a focal subject/recurring subject of a Jellyfish, which then had me looking more into Jellyfish, and the more I found out the more it seemed to synchronise with the messages of my practice and just made that stronger. I have been able to design a concept for my end-of-degree show, which is already well on its way. By finding something I’m passionate about that covers a lot of different angles in my practice I know I have the determination to be ambitious with my final piece.
My practice focuses on art in relation to mental health and care, and the importance of pausing, reflecting and just taking a moment sometimes in this hectic world. A lot is to be learnt from how a jellyfish stays elegantly suspended in the water, riding the currents and dancing with every wave
