Imperfect Eco-lifestyle Changes

Imperfect Eco-lifestyle Changes

This year, I tried Veganism during Veganuary and found it to be very insightful. I learned that even being Vegetarian means that I was not aware of everything that I was consuming in my food. The amount of random ingredients in foods is shocking. Going vegan set in motion my research into zero-waste, and I soon realised […]

WorksInProgress

Looking back, last semester was a bit of a blunder for me. Despite the struggle, I feel like I’ve learnt so much, and now is my time to apply all of the struggles to create a success. As of recently, I’ve been exploring my styles much more in order to portray my emotional connection with […]

Exhibition Emerging

Exhibition Emerging

It’s the beginning of the last semester of my undergraduate degree. It’s gone by so fast! So I set off into Rheidol valley once again… I have been working on a few paintings over the past few days for my graduate exhibition. These paintings all involve a waterfall in the Cambrian mountains in winter. I […]

2018

2018

  Behind Me—dips Eternity— Before Me—Immortality— Myself—the Term between— – Emily Dickinson   My 2018 was a thunderstorm. I began to learn more about myself and pushed through anxieties to make last year the best it year could have been. I feel as though I can say that 2018 was one of the best years […]

Changing my process

Changing my process

After beginning to investigate aerial landscapes I feel that their generalized composition has meant that I can really explore my process. Recently, I have become very interested in how the paint flows and how this natural process is repeated in the natural world around us. The first three paintings (below) are experiments using my second-year […]

Spooky Autumn Reads

It’s been over a month since I last posted some bookish things. I’ve been busy working, reading, socialising, you know – all those student things. This academic year is the final one of my undergraduate degree and because of that, I’m hoping I can post on here at least once a month. However, it’s not […]

A Note on I Am Legend by Richard Matherson

I have been so excited to read some Matherson, even more so after I read Stephen King’s afterword in my edition of I Am Legend, it was one of the most interesting horror/science fiction novels I’ve read. And just like King said in the afterword, I didn’t want I Am Legend to end. Although Mathersons’ original novel has a film […]

Notes On A Nervous Planet by Matt Haig

Notes On A Nervous Planet by Matt Haig

To read my review of his previous mental health book, Reasons To Stay Alive, click here. In the opening chapter of this wonderful, insightful book, Matt Haig summarises his masterpiece perfectly: “I had already written about my mental health in Reasons To Stay Alive. But the question this time was a broader one: how can we live in a mad […]

Summer Project 2018

Summer Project 2018

After receiving my feedback from my previous modules I have decided to put it into action. I was chatting with my tutors and they seemed surprised that I’d never thought of using ink to draw landscapes – and it’s true, I never have. Since I enjoy doing life drawing sketches in ink so much I […]
