About me

From a young age, I had the idea to pursue a career in teaching but, felt the best teachers who had taught me had experience in industry before education. I have always had a passion for architecture and found it fascinating, which encouraged me to undertake a degree in architecture to then participate in a PCGE to become a teacher.

During the last three years, I have developed my creative and innovative skills which will provide a great foundation for my future teaching career.

Project 1- Temple of Antitheses. We had to design a building that was non religious place of sanctuary for ceremony, memory and to provide respite from the hustle and bustle of Blackpool. Within the design there are three key spaces- solitude, sharing and gathering. Project 2- Made In Blackpool. Through analysis and research, we had to produce our own souvenir that was made using using traditional crafting techniques. For my souvenir, I chose to do screen printing onto t-shirts. We then had to design a building where our souvenirs are to be made and sold in Blackpool.
