Ba Hons Fine Art - First Class Honours
Manchester Metropolitan University
First Class Honours
I have studied Art and Architecture and have graduated this Summer with a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art. My practice focuses on immersive spatial installations constructed using digital technologies such as projection mapping and 3D holograms. I create the entire installations from the initial concept to the final design using various Autodesk and Adobe Suite software. My work has been shown in multiple exhibitions and I have been involved in the organisation, curation and promotion of these events. I am excited by the prospect of applying these skills in a practical environment and gaining experience with an established creative team.
