Fine Art

In June of 2015 I completed my Masters Degree in Fine Art.

Throughout the two years of study I undertook an intensive research programme where I explored new methods of investigation and construction, basing my research on themes of memory, nostalgia and history through retained narrative.

All of the following pieces were completed during those two years.
