Throughout my Fine Art education I’ve explored multiple disciplines, from feminist ceramics to non-objective photography, striving to expand my knowledge and skills across a breadth of areas. In my final year of studies I’ve taken a materialist interest in highlighting the delicate and subtle qualities of paper, elevating what’s often overlooked as a mundane, secondary surface.

Informed by Sven Spieker’s theory of destructive regeneration, I harness the use of combustion to manipulate paper, repetitively hand-burning small holes into the material using a pyrography tool. This process paradoxically liberates paper’s transformative potential, highlighting its fragility and translucency, which is further amplified by the use of lighting and installation. Repetitive marks leave reductive traces on the material, inferring themes of control, duration, repetition and destruction.

My skill set lies with more traditional painting and drawing media, however I wanted to challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone in investigating the regeneration of a humble, everyday material.

During my fast-paced role as an Allocation Analyst at TJX Europe I was responsible for allocating product to stores in order to create an exciting, optimal mix of goods. Through interpretation of numerical data and consumer trends I spotted risks and opportunities to sales plans in order to maximise profit.

Throughout my time at the company I significantly developed my problem-solving skills, commercial awareness, communication skills and my analytical ability. I researched specifically into e-commerce, and produced work on the topic which was escalated to all of the merchandising sectors in the UK headquarters.
