Over the last year I have studied HNC Art and Design at North Glasgow College where I have been given the amazing opportunity and freedom to experiment with my ideas. In this time I have improved greatly on the skills I had learnt both at school and in night classes as well as obtain an extensive list of new ones. In particular I have been immersed with utilizing Photoshop, conceptual drawing and expressive mark making in my work. During this time I have also been given the chance to experience a week’s artistic residency at Hospitalfield in Arbroath. It was here that I began to really appreciate what a great asset it is to work alongside like-minded people through participating in critiques and group studies. It is fascinating to me to see how other artists approach the same given subject differently and I greatly enjoy being able to “bounce” ideas off one another in class.
