The End of University!

8 Jun

Although there haven’t been many updates on my blog during the last few months I intend to update my site on a much more regular basis now that I do have a little more free time, in between graduation, showing my collection at New Designers in London and moving back to Cumbria from my student house in Dundee!

The last few weeks have been incredibly busy, first I received my degree results on the 16th of May and I am incredibly pleased to say I have achieved a Bachelor of Design Degree with Honours First Class. Following this my degree show at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design took place from the 19th-27th of May. It was brilliant to speak to potential clients, future students as well as current designers and craftspeople about my work. The feedback and comments I received were incredibly encouraging. Below are some images documenting the work I produced during my final year at university.

A Little Update

21 Mar

It is fair to say that recently my blog has not been updated even half as often as I would like; unfortunately this is due to my ever-increasing workload and approaching deadlines at university. However in the coming months this will change and I will definitely be posting more information about my degree show project alongside photographs of my design work and final knitted accessories. For now here are some images of my work taken at the ‘Work in Progress Exhibition’ in the Bradshaw Art Space at Duncan of Jordanstone College or Art and Design in Dundee last December (which I mentioned in an earlier post). Within the gallery I presented twelve still-life photographs, which combine mechanical and natural elements. The images are representative of the twelve months of the year and are segregated in to four seasonal colour schemes. In addition, I displayed four seasonal still life pieces and four cutout and collage sketchbooks, images of which are shown below.

A Day Out in Cumbria

4 Feb

On my last day at home before returning to university for my final semester I went walking with my mum and the latest addition to our family, Pip, a lovely 6 month old rescue puppy. It was a lovely winter morning, icy yet bright and sunny, below are some of the photographs I took from the shores of Derwentwater.


After a morning walking and a spot of shopping we visited Rheged to see the ‘WOW: Wonder of Wool and the Art of Knit and Stitch’ exhibition. The exhibition features the work of 20 artists and designers, the work on show was very varied; I particularly liked the work of Celia Pym who mends frayed and holed garments.  Unfortunately I cannot find a website for Celia Pym but some images of her work and some more information is available here:
