The Student Art Guide

I meant to mention this sooner but I've been featured here on "The Student Art Guide". It was an amazing surprise when I got an email from the talented artist, teacher and founder of the site, Amiria Robinson, explaining how she'd seen my Kingston University art foundation application on Flickr and wanted to interview me for her site. So thrilled to be a part of this lovely project designed to inspire GCSE and A-level art students. I only wish I knew about this inspirational site a few years earlier! I think the level of detail that the interviews go into is what makes it really helpful, as you get to understand the thought processes behind successful projects and learn how you can apply these processes to your own work.
I highly recommend checking it out whether you're a keen artist yourself or just want to browse through the work of some remarkably talented young artists-to-be!

My project was based on the theme of Facade so I decided to use it as a challenge to move away from my usual much more realistic style of painting and drawing towards something more abstract and distorted- like the faces were behind a type of facade… If you want to know more though, I go into plenty of detail in the interview!

Here are some pictures from the feature:




 The two images pictured above are some examples of laser-cutting I used in the project.




 Above are examples of mixed-media collages using cut up photographs, mono prints and collograph prints and acrylic paints.




 And finally, some observational drawings using a variety of mediums. There may well be more to come from the project though!

  1. I think that experimenting with painting styles is always a good idea...we don't need to necessary change our style but it can make us see everything with more clarity. Great work!

    1. Thank you so much Ivana! <3 I'd certainly agree with that! And without experimenting, you'll never have the opportunity to stretch your creativity or find a style you like better
