There are two reasons why I haven’t posted lately.
One- I have been super busy with interviews for uni and college work
Two- I haven’t been feeling my best, mentally, so wanted to take a break.
The latter comes after having my interview at Leeds College of Art. I am in love with the university. It is perfect for me and the course seems outstanding, but they rejected my application to study there. Due to one thing or another, the rest of my application process hasn’t gone fab. Whilst everyone else at college has offers, I have only received UCAS updates about my applications being ‘unsuccessful’. The only other person applying to art college in my year keeps coming into art with positive news, whereas I am still waiting for some good news to tell Emma (my art teacher), after waiting since I sent off my UCAS form away in November. Anyhoo, I’ll give you a run down on some of the things that I have recently done.

A couple of days after returning from Brighton, we headed into Durham to buy chickens for Jasmine’s birthday present. She got a white silkie chicken called Clucky, and a goldtop called Pecky and they are really sweet additions to the family.
I have also been busy with revision for business, finishing my coursework for art and photography as well as my contextual study for photography and beginning my two exam projects for my AS and A2 fine art- so a fair amount of work!
I am heading off to a vintage fair in Newcastle this Saturday to take photographs of strangers for my A2 exam unit, where I am exploring people’s perceptions of each other and how we judge what people look like. One of the artists who I have been inspired by is Hanna Ilczyszyn, I came across her work on The Jealous Curator blog and I love the techniques and colours she uses.
