T O D A Y ‘ S T H O U G H T S 🧠:
5 years have flown by; it feels like just yesterday I was a nervous wreck drowning in a heavy graduation gown.
I managed to graduate with a 2:2 in Visual Arts, not the best degree but in a course that’s heavily opinionated and it all depends on whether your tutor likes your style, I was quite happy to have received anything.
However, it always leaves me feeling a little “meh” when the anniversary arrives, as great as the experience of graduating was, I’m now left with £20k debt and nothing really to show for it.
I always dreamed I would fall out of uni and straight into an art-related job, but life isn’t like that.
I love art. I’m passionate about art.
Art is not how I’m going to pay my bills, at least not for the foreseeable future.
I have spent the last 5 years in and out of various hospitality jobs, all have provided amazing experiences (and some not so!), but I can only hope that one day I will get to be the freelance artist I have always wanted to be.
