Architecture, BSc (Hons)


About me

After high school I attended Kendal College for 3 years studying Level 2 Diploma in Art and Design (Distinction) and Level 3 Diploma in Art and Design (Merit). During this Period I also undertook work experience locally at a printers, at the hospital and also worked for a charity. The reason I want to be an Architect is because I have always had a fascination with buildings, especially with old buildings and their history. I really enjoy the idea of working in restoration and sustainability and I feel like that is where my future lies. Whilst at University I have developed my skills further with the following software: Photoshop, AutoCAD, Revit, InDesign and Illustrator. In my Spare time, I’m a keen photographer and I am currently collecting vintage cameras and take photos with black and white film, which I have made an Instagram account for: ‘fade_to_black_and_white’.
