BA (Hons) Fine Art and Illustration

Firstly, I want to congratulate this year’s graduates, who have certainly endured a more unusual time than most that have come before them. Over the last three years, they have excitedly imagined what their degree shows would culminate to and where it would lead them. Unfortunately, in the midst of their major project, they have been shaken by a global pandemic which has forced them into one of the most uncomfortable and worrying situations they’ve probably ever had to face. Despite the uncertainty they have been dealt, they have shown exemplary professionalism and inspiringly good spirits to see their projects out to the end.  

In all of this, I have not heard a single moan, not a single complaint, they have all just got their heads down and done what needs to be done and it’s because of this fantastic attitude, I believe this crop of graduates on the Fine Art & Illustration course will be successful in whatever direction they choose to pursue. I have witnessed a wide range of exciting work that is full of passion and energy that places them well in the art and design industry. It’s been a pleasure to work with this lovely group of hardworking artists and I wish them all the very best and encourage them all to stay in touch if they ever need any help.
