Work has continued on the consolidation, clarification and development of Art based projects.

Whilst studying Visual studies I completed a dissertation independently and obtained a Upper 2:1 honours degree in a balance of practical and theoretical art.

Current objectives and aims centre around further education, specifically the CCC research-based master programme - at Haute École D’art et De Design in Geneva, Switzerland.
