Welcome to the Catacombs!Yep, our first full day in Paris me, my friend (also called Hannah) and my boyfriend made our way to the Catacombs. After walking a long way, getting a bit lost and stopping near Notre Dame for lunch we finally found ourselves in the queue to see some dead people.I say some…
The catacombs contain the remains of around 6 million people. That’s a lot of bones!If you want to check out the Catacombs yourself or want to about their history check out the site:
I’ll be posting more..

My art class went up to London last Thursday and we came home Saturday evening. It was great fun but incredibly tiring!
On the Saturday we visited the Tate to see our Family Matters project with Tracey Moberly projected on the gallery’s walls. It was fantastic to see our work in a big exhibition like that! These are some quick pics I took of my work when it was shown on the wall in the Tate:
Ok so it’s about time I made a new post, seen as I finished my Family Matters project for Tracey Moberly almost a week ago! I haven’t really been thinking about my blog recently because I’ve been so busy looking at possible Universities for me to go to next year! It’s exciting AND scary!
Anyway, these are my favourite images I have produced for Tracey Moberly under the title Family Saturdays. I asked my grandparents to write about their childhood Saturdays and I then combined their writing with photos I took of them on the Saturdays I spent with them over the last few weeks. Hopefully Tracey will like them and pick one or two to be shown in the Tate.
Ok so I’m almost at the end of my second Human Form project. Can’t believe how fast it goes!
The subject of this project is Human Form Expression. These are some photos I did to express how I felt, what I thought and what I saw when listening to music – 2Cellos -Hurt.
I created these using ink in water. I was fascinated when looking back at my photos at the shapes and images the ink created in the water. What do you see?
Today was my deadline for my Human Form Image project so I will let you in on some more of the work I did for it.
These are photos from a shoot I did of myself. I focused on what is considered the ‘ideal image’ and how we create this and then ‘destroyed’ them to different degrees.
I found it quite fun creating and destroying my own image 😀
Things are speeding up in College now, I can see i’m going to be incredibly busy, especially as I have just applied to two extra part time courses! Jewellery & Silversmithing and Pattern Cutting.
In Art we have moved on with our Human Form projects and we are now working more specifically on Image. These are a few photos of my friend Megan which I will soon be “destroying” as we are researching Rankin’s Destroy project. I reckon this is going to be pretty fun! 🙂
Earlier this summer I did a couple of taster days at Llywn y Bryn where I am starting Foundation Art next month. We were set a project to do during the holidays on the Human Form so here are a few photos from a shoot I did with my sister Ellen as my model creating silhouettes and shadows of the human body.
