welcome,
I am currently nearing the end of my foundation year at shrewsbury college of arts and tecnology, in october i will be starting on my BA hons at herefored college of art
please turn to my journal page for detailed information about myself as an artist, i hope this will enhance your viewing of my gallery. I would one day like to support myself through art, therefore any help or hints, feedback or friendship will be received enthusiastically.
If your work often features themes of animal rights then I would very much like to hear with you. I have been a committed vegan for a year now, and have began outwardly expressing my lifestyle through my art to better understand myself personally, and explore inviting other people into a very personal aspect of myself. I am interesting in seeing any work of a similar nature.
Thank you for visiting
