Before studying to become a filmmaker at Coventry University, I had a huge passion for art. It was a difficult choice deciding which subject to study further as I love both film and art, but I realised that picking one doesn’t mean I have to give up the other. In fact, my interest in art has had a direct effect on my filmmaking style due to influences from the art world.
During my A-level studies of Fine Art, I spent a lot of time sketching nude models. At first this was a daunting and embarrassing experience (I was only 17 at the time) but half way through my first session I began to feel comfortable with the situation and enjoyed working in this environment. I do miss doing these sketches and will maybe when I get the time, will look into taking new classes and develop my skills further.
