They are initial experimental pieces for part of her Final Major Project where she is exploring the human form through multi-media approaches.

The 1st year students studying A-Level Product Design in the Built Environment (PDBE) spent this week improving on their mini model making skills. Their brief was to populate a town with relevant buildings required for its infrastructure. From a list they chose a building type, designed and then built it from green high density foam and scrap material. The photos show some of the best models from the task, including a brutalist police station, twisted linear style high-rise and traditional village church.
and painting. Finished product coming soon!

`I live in London where I work as Fashion Coordinator for bi-annual luxury fashion publications 10 Magazine and 10 Men.
After completing the National Diploma in Art & Design at Truro, I went on to graduate from Central Saint Martins with a fashion degree, before working freelance at publications including The Sunday Times Style magazine. I then began my current role at 10 & 10 Men. I also work closely with international stylist and creative director Sophia Neophitou on brand consultancies which include Roland Mouret and Antonio Berardi.
My time at the college allowed me to fully explore my potential through great one on one tuition and creative freedom. My tutors provided me with invaluable direction that definitely helped shape my future in the industry.`
