Relevant Experience

Creative Projects

(2016-2017) “Self”

Explored my strong creativity skills during my first year of degree, where I focused on colour psychology, freedom of expression and drawing performances, to express difficult emotions and experiences.

(2015-2016) “Breakdown”

Expressed my interest in psychology and creativity in my foundation diploma, where my final exhibition displayed an abstract portrayal of a mental experience/sensation, through ceramic casting. The experience was a mental breakdown, and I expressed the stages through glazes, using colour psychology for emotions experienced within each said stage. I also displayed a life size sculpture, of the breakdown stage in physical reality, with the mind exploding.

(2017-Ongoing) “Abstract Memories”

Exploring representing memories through performance art, sculpture and video.
