For my Final Major Project I looked into the role of play within adult life and considered the reasons why many adults don't play enough. I decided to design and make my own adult climbing frame that could be placed within a variety of public spaces.
I used a space frame structure to give it strength and stability. It is built using over 650 wooden struts, approximately 2000 metal joints - which I designed myself and made by hand- and over 20,000 screws!
Finally play details were also added. This time they were a mixture of hanging ropes, a hammock, yoga balls and some coloured fabric triangles...
P.S - try playing 'Work from Home' by Fifth Harmony while watching my 'Making Of' video below... it really livens things up :D
I graduated off of the FdA in July 2015 and went directly into the last year of the BA course. Here's my first piece of work that year!
I made a giant immersive interactive installation of the WWII Enigma machine. My play representation mimics its workings, and with a little bit of ball tossing, a tad of puzzle matching and a climb through a tunnel of bungee-cord webs, you can code and decode your own secret messages!
I continued to work more closely with the Science Gallery London team to develop my existing MOUTHY Competition Work.
My Final Image went on to be featured across all platforms used for the MOUTHY exhibition. This includes digital banners on the exhibition's Facebook and Website; and on printed media, such as posters, postcards and large-scale hoarding vinyls.
I also made a new, more exciting stop-motion animation to accompany my design.
This opportunity has been such a GREAT experience, and it has been absolutely fabulous working with the wonderful team at Science Gallery London.
Check out a blog I wrote HERE - Where I talk about my inspiration, progression and the development of my MOUTHY Lead Season Image design.

In February we were asked to take part in an external competition brief. I chose to work under Science Gallery London's brief- to design a lead season image for their upcoming exhibition, which opened last July.
The exhibition is called MOUTHY and it is all about the mouth.
Continuing my path this year into 3-dimentional illustration I made my lead image out of Fimo.
AND THEY CHOSE ME! :D
Here is the work that I made for the MOUTHY Competition Brief...

One of the earlier projects in my second year at Camberwell was to create a newspaper book. I decided to illustrate the police record of Jeffrey Dahmer's arrest.
Here are a few pages from my final piece (in their printed layout order). It may be a little bit morbid but it was a fascinating read!
Here's an animation I made in the second year of my FdA illustration course at Camberwell University. As a class we all entered the LoopdeLoop bi-monthly animation challenge. They have a new theme twice a month and ours was FACES.
This was my first ever attempt at making an animation. I used hand drawn frames and then assembled it and added the colour in photoshop.
I was really excited to see it win LoopdeLoop's Talbot's choice award!!!
Check out the LoopdeLoop website here at: http://www.loopdeloop.org it's REALLY great!
In my first year at Camberwell we were asked to create work to a given piece of prose. I decided to look into the art of shadow puppetry and combine it with the old storytelling form of the crankie.
With over 30 meters of illustrations, on a single reel of paper, I made my own moving image depicting the well know nonsense poem by Lewis Carroll - 'The Hunting of the Snark.'
