I am a 37-year-old contemporary video artist, the art I create is focused on human experience, everyday, and future expectations. My artistic expression depends upon imagery, light, projection, sculpture, and sound.
My practice has not always been within this medium, I first started this fine art degree as a painter. I have always been someone who experiments with different materials and I am interested in how artwork has evolved throughout the years.
In semester two I created a life-sized puppet that encouraged a viewer connection by projecting a short video of my animated face. I chose this year, to continue the theme however, it had to be very different. I followed my love of theatre and this is when shadow came to light.
I have been accepted onto a PGSE course to teach art at a secondary level. I will be starting this in September of this year.
