June 2019, Evolution House, Edinburgh College of Art

 

The culmination of my journey through university. I spent a considerable amount of time planning out every inch of the wall to ensure that every aspect fit in with my theme and complimented the art on display.

 

One of my main projects was based on “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.” I created an illustrated edition of the novels to give them the praise they deserve by portraying my vision of these characters, whilst still being true to their descriptions.

 

I also created the series of owls to display the detail and characterisation I can achieve from animals in the same way that is usually conveyed through portraits of people.

As part on an ongoing project to bring attention to the herbarium at the Royal Botanical Gardens Edinburgh, my displayed work was created to highlight the ecological collections between wildlife and plant life.

 

I specifically researched Malaysia’s ecological situation and hoped to teach children the importance of plants and how they affect the animals they love.

Artist Markets

 

Since graduating, I’ve delved into many ventures to market and sell my work, one of the main being artist markets. This is a great way to meet different customers and promote my work on offer as well as commissions.
