Exhibition Photography

After publishing the blog post about my disastrous graduation pieces I realised that I forgot to show the photographs that were shown alongside the two paintings. The photos were my saving grace, without them, I may not have passed my exhibition module so I thought it would be a shame for you not to seeContinue reading “Exhibition Photography”

Lockdown malaise

When the prospect of being furloughed and staying home to continue with my uni work first became a thing, I was quite relieved. I am not too proud to admit that I have been struggling to fit two part-time jobs in with my uni work. You see, there’s one thing about me that only thoseContinue reading “Lockdown malaise”

Coping with Covid_19

When I began my MA I did not envisage being in the situation we all find ourselves in now. Uni is closed and I am holed up in my flat like the siege of Stalingrad is going on outside. But this situation is no joke. We are living in unprecedented and scary times indeed. SoContinue reading “Coping with Covid_19”

This may turn into a rather long piece but please bear with me. I took a lot of photos because I was so interested in what I saw. This has given me lots of food for thought to explore, when/if I do my Masters! I was incredibly fortunate to be invited by Ceredigion Museum toContinue reading “Ceredigion Museum visit.”

More bra paintings

So over the Christmas period I continued with my series of bra paintings. These were slightly different to the first painting. Firstly, they were all A3, and secondly, they were all painted with the same background; the wallpaper in my hallway. Due to the lack of light and room to set up an easel IContinue reading “More bra paintings”

New work part 2.

After teasing you all with my last post I thought it only fair to leave you a little Christmas present of the final work-in-progress photographs and the final finished piece! I continued with creating layers to build up the lace effect on the bra itself. I used acrylic mediums for the first time with thisContinue reading “New work part 2.”
