Interests and Personality

BiographyI am 20 years old and have always had an interest in Art. After studying for Higher and Advanced Higher at school I completed a Portfolio Preparation course at Dundee College. In September 2007 I began studying on the BA (Hons) General Art Course at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee and after completing first year I’ve chosen to specialise in Fine Art. My favourite subject for painting and drawing is nature, and I have been particularly inspired by the paintings of Elizabeth Blackadder and Schiele. Another artist whom I admire is Andy Goldsworthy, with his use of natural materials. I also enjoy life drawing. I enjoy art history. My favourites include Manet’s ‘Olympia’, Picasso’s ‘Les Demoiselles d’Avignon’ and Boticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’. I am by nature precise, patient and diligent and I feel this is reflected in my style of work.
