MA work

The work passes comment on society by reflecting, manipulating and exaggerating the ordinary, in order to pose questions. Humour is used to communicate the surreal and peculiar parts of life that are sometimes preferred to be left private. The outcomes have been used in different contexts, having been applied in architectural, children’s and theatrical, and commercial fields. A combination of digital and hand-produced techniques allow the work to be applied and adapted for commissions within design. My working experiences in the fine art sector, illustration and communications industries, have been valuable when working on personal commissions and to briefs.
