BA (Hons) Illustration
Throughout my degree, I have always found myself going back to my roots, and creating work inspired by the council estate I live in, Mile Cross. Known as Norwich’s first council estate, Mile Cross is considered one of the most deprived areas in the country.
I wanted to shine a light on this beloved place, my home, and illustrate the many houses that make Mile Cross what it is. My interests developed and I was keen to compare the dream houses of the children from my old primary school, Mile Cross Primary School. My weeks spent there teaching workshops was the drive that pushed me towards a teaching career. These workshops have taught me a key set of skills, and I am excitedly looking forward to the future.
