I have always been fascinated with the beauty and grandeur of the festivals in Italy and South America that produce incredible designs and creations with their intricate details and flamboyant personalities. I wanted to produce a visual design that exhibited similar features. Using watercolour, I wanted to highlight the consumerist perspective of ‘pretty sells’ in conjunction with the premise behind masks, the layers, hidden identity and facades.
An Education student training to be an English/Art teacher. I focus on visual arts and in particular fine arts with emphasis on graphite, charcoal, biro and watercolour. My artwork is a venetian mask. With the pandemic, I have had more time to draw, doodle and practice my craft. After the festival, I will finish my education degree and begin teaching high-school students English and Art.
