I love to share the work of people who inspire me and going to Art University like Falmouth means I get to see new and exciting work all the time. I've decided to do a weekly blog post about Falmouth University students in particular whose work has influenced and motivated me this week//
Lorna is a graduate of Falmouth University who studied Natural Marine Photography course. I came across her work through my friend Hannah and was instantly stuck by Lorna's ability to capture the rawness of the landscape. The lighting and moody atmosphere of her images are something that I resonate with a lot.
Below is also a link to a trailer for her beautiful film 'River Man' which was part of her final exhibition at Falmouth University. She has a strong eye for composition and movement and this is captured in this film. I was lucky enough to meet Lorna last week and got the chance to learn more about her influences and ways of working//River Man//Trailer
Freya is someone I've followed on Instagram for a while, she has a strong eye for composition and colour. Through the exploration of structure and colour she is able to create pieces of work that balance and make the viewer feel calm. Freya is currently a 3rd year on the Fine Art course.
She combines shapes, colour and interesting ideas of mapping to create a distorted idea of space. I've been inspired by her digital drawings and the repetition of line.

She knows how much I love her work and ability to create such memorable pieces of narrative. Her work has been of influence in the last couple of days where I feel my own practice is getting slightly lost. How Katie combines texture and mark making to create representational narrative is something that continues to push me to try to do the same in my own work.
