“I’ve always wanted to raise awareness for animals and wildlife, but I’ve always had success through narrative. I love the classics, so I decided to use Moby Dick to raise awareness for sperm whales. I produced quite a lot of work based on raising awareness, but I decided to use four light boxes to make one big image of Moby Dick. It’s all made out of paper cuts and lit up from behind with LEDs .
This year has probably been my hardest year, but I’ve had massive support from my tutors. I wasn’t expecting to do as well as I did at all. When I first started I had no idea what I wanted to do, I didn’t think I had a niche but, as soon as my tutors saw that I was in to paper cuts, they really helped with that. In third year you get so much freedom to do what you want, you just go for it.
I never though freelance would be an option, but I do have an interview with an Illustration agency in London!”
