Me graduating (and not falling over on stage, success!)
Working on some variations of the wedding invitations I’m currently creating for my cousin, the winter theme uses a colour pallet of the flowers and bridesmaids dresses and actual winter flowers in the design. I’m really happy so far, and love drawing again. Maybe I have found something else to do with my life!

One of many great artists who influences me, so happy I finally got to see her work in person.

Had a lovely time relaxing in the sunshine and now I’m back to reality, which is a shame.. I would travel and forget everything in a heartbeat if I could.
Been taking a break for a few weeks to relax and get over the end of my degree, final major project, final show etc. I am now faced with the realities of trying to find work. However as part of my award I am being mentored by the Library of Birmingham GRAIN Photography hub. I had a meeting with them and portfolio review that went really well and I am really looking forward to working with them. While I was there I was given a tour of the exhibition space and got to see Daniel Meadows retrospective there. The shots pictured above were taken for free of the British public while he travelled around in his converted bus which had a bed and a dark room. I really wish I could do this right now, sounds like a great time.

'Ephemeral' - Nicola Onions
My final major project at university explores dementia and existence and visualises these ideas through the use of thawing ice. I have finally finished 3 years of studying and am graduating with a first class degree. I also won a visual communication award from the Library of Birmingham and GRAIN photography hub. I’m really looking forward to doing a placement there, possibly working in the photography archive and maybe creating some work for them.
So happy to be featured in #PHOTOGRAPHY magazine along side other fantastic photographers, the range is this issue is so diverse, you have to check it out :)
