I am looking to change my career and persue my art.

I currently live in Southend after moving here from east London a year ago, so it would be lovely to be able to find a work space around where I grew up as that gives me inspiration and creativity.

I feel like this would be the perfect opportunity for me to explore myself and grow into doing something that I’m so passionate about.

I’m excited to see what I can achieve as this will be a big step for me and my future.

I have always had a pencil in my hand since I was old enough to remember, my family say I got my creativeness from my grandfather who I never met but I have seen his art work and realise what they mean.

Education wise I only have my GCSE's in Art (A+) and Graphic Design (A) also some certificates that I have from small art groups I used to attend outside of school at a young age.

I never pursued Art as an education after secondary school, at that age I didn't see or realise the opportunities it had to offer.

Only now going through certain events in my life with friends and family around me I have come to terms that I need to take this opportunity and use my talent.

I use my art sometimes as an escape as it lets me be myself, also the joy it brings to other people seeing something iv created that is personal to them.

Now I have got to a stage where I want to experiment using different mediums and explore what I can do, I now have so many ideas it's hard to keep track of one after the other.
