With the graduate show all up and graduating this year, it is like the calm after a storm. It has been scary, thrilling and fun and now I feel I can bring my experiences and work into clarity just before I enter what is the ‘real world’. Looking at these inspiring artists has been a good dose.

I always refer to my favourite artist Frida Kahlo, not only of her work but her character and style. Her work is beautiful but dark and in a way a ‘F you’ to reality… a celebration of colour, pride and bravery in her world. 

I recently watched ‘Pop Go the Women’ and ‘The Story of Women and Art’ both BBC documentaries. This was where I discovered Pauline Boty a sassy Pop artist who captured her perspective of the time through her artwork that was colourful, loud and liberating. I also discovered Karin Larsson, a wife and mother, who never sacrificed her creativity and made her home the canvas of her work, that has influenced contemporary interior design.  

I feel naturally drawn to using my hands again and creating craft, stepping away from any use of digital. Recently I have been painting colourful patterns on candles which has been a satisfying process and is inspiring me for something new and exciting for my future part in the Brighton show in London.

I spent the weekend filming my little sister for my new short piece of moving image. It’s been a turmoil of giggles and the wind blowing out my candles but through it all it was a beautiful experience to get my family involved, creating magic in the garden and seeing my old home in Kent through a different light. I took a small leap by filming outdoors, other people rather than myself and to involve my personal memories, whilst still using the aesthetics and visual influences that I love. Even if the final result is not the best, I feel I am going somewhere in the right direction.
