Elys Kent Studying Art & Design at The Blackpool Sixth Form College, Blackpool
Show More Artist Statement

I love art more than anything. It is more than just a hobby to me, it is a career, its my life. I love working in acrylic and mixed media because acrylic dries quickly and is easy to use is many different ways and mixed media is very interesting you can do a lot with and it leaves a lot of room for experimentation. My art often reflects me and my mood at the time of the start of the project. However I don't like to stick to the same theme or media as I am always looking for new skills to learn and constantly inspired by new things. I often make notes about my ideas as I find it difficult to find time to do them all. I got an A* in my art GCSE and an A in my graphics GCSE and I am predicted to get A's in both for my AS level and intend to keep them both for A level. I am very in to photography as well which is beneficial as it is a huge part of both art and graphics. I am constantly going to art galleries looking at exhibits and being inspired. I am currently studying a level art and I think it's going well, I intend to go on to university to study art and design. When I leave university I intend to set up my own business as an artist and part time graphic designer and photographer.
