Familiar Place - Analytical Work through Drawings and Paintings of a domestic space
In the first year of my art A-level I mostly focused on an expression of past memories through mixed media. Researching artists like Njideka Akunyili Crosby inspired me to use personal memorabilia, hidden in college or under layers of light tissue paper, adding an echo of warmth and familiarity into my work. I used layering in my work as a way to build on the past while adding new elements like stitched in patterns to it.
Documenting as Art - Drawings and Paintings
I created a series of cominations of two ideas from my development. I used a montage of family photos with gesso over top as a background for an object painted in acrylic paint as well as sellotape transfers. I combined the idea of collage with that of the object and used light layering in my work.

The Sculpture Paviliion - Casting Objects and Architecture
The main inspiration for this project was Carlo Scarpa’s architecture, in particular, his Sculpture Garden 1952 for the Venice Biennale. I was inspired to create a place to showcase sculptures while being a piece of art in itself and I wanted to make a sculpture pavilion of my own.
