    BA (Hons) Illustration - First Class HonoursThe University of Hertfordshire
     - United Kingdom
    During my three years of studying, I have been encouraged to create innovative design and illustration and focus on business development. For my final major project I created a theoretical ‘summer takeover’ rebrand for the Natural History Museum, which highlights and celebrates endangered underwater species and pays homage to the importance of the blue whale to the museum. Other examples of work I have created; - Fully illustrated storybooks - Editorial illustrations for a poetry book called 'Love Poems' - A map of my home town - A cocktail recipe book - Emoji's, GIF's and animations - Book cover design (including entries into the Penguin Random House Student Design Award). I have also undertaken collaborative projects with other illustrators on my course, with creative writing students to produce editorial illustrations for their magazine 'Postcards', and with graphic designers to create a campaign to reduce adobe's pricing for students.

    Foundation Diploma in Art, Design, and Media - DistinctionBuckinghamshire new university
     - High Wycombe, United Kingdom
    My year at Buckinghamshire New was exciting and varied. We were encouraged to be innovative and creative, and to have a strong concept behind any developed idea. During my time here I experimented with product, graphic, interior and typographic design, and specialised in fine art and conceptual thinking. For my final major project I researched and explored the idea of beauty and how it is portrayed in the media. In my response I created a life size interactive dressing table with accessories in latex, fully standing with supporting photography for our public exhibition. This was to represent the other side of beauty, taking the often filtered objects and portraying them in an unpleasant smelling, discoloured rubber resembling dead skin cells.
