In college, I was encouraged to go wherever the ideas led me so I was apprehensive about moving on to university – thinking it could be the end to my creative freedom. But I couldn’t have been more wrong. The tutors pushed me to follow my creative ramblings, to find the art I love making and the directions I want to pursue in the future (which happens to be most areas), and I sincerely hope that I never lose the drive.
My style adapts to whatever medium fits the project at hand. Some days I make things out of cardboard and glue, sometimes it’s ink and paper, other days it’s a drawing tablet and computer, or whatever style fits the brief. I work mainly with applied observational drawings and simple colour palettes. Graphic design elements have begun appearing in my project directions, and I am excited to pursue this learning curve in more depth after graduating.
Experimenting with digital approaches led me to win a London film festival poster competition in 2018. I am still proud of myself for that accomplishment as I was very close to not submitting the design. It now serves as a personal reminder to fully commit to things I want to try.
I am excited to continue learning, exploring and having fun with my creative ideas everyday.
