To take a journey in art is to follow a path that is never ending; you will never know all there is to know or see and discover all there is out there. You will find yourself 10 years down that path still discovering new things, getting excited and inspired by the most ordinary of things, question the media to which we are exposed, whether it be the design of a C...
The decision to study Art and Design as a university course is one which I have spent a lot of time thinking about.

"Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one" Stella Adler. Where the line of normalcy is shaped differently in the eyes of artists, as everything is relative, there exists the freedom that only artists can create - the space, colour and texture on which that line of normalcy lies, in order to make it one at all...

From an early age, I have found Art fascinating. I believe Art disputes claims of humans being just boring biological machines. Art allows me to transform images in my mind into something tangible. The ability to convert imagination into reality intrigues me...
From a young age I have always been interested in how things work, and would often get told off by my dad for taking things apart around the house!

I felt myself following rules made by others, and when I heard about sound design, it seemed as a freedom to create my own soundscapes...
At university I hope to study graphics design, the reason for this is because from a young age I’ve always had a very high interest in advertising and graphics design everything that is around us has been designed and this has always fascinated me, I’ve wanted to be involved and a part of this, in my spare time I normally educate myself looking at tutorials on either web design, video editing and graphics such as Photoshop and Indesign, my strongest software experience is Photoshop and Indesign and I spend my majority of my time designing abstract and random graphics in affect this means that I’m very familiar with the adobe products interface and the majority of the panels, my video editing skills are very mild which means there’s room for improvement...
