Birds Of prey Project

This is what I have been up to the past 6 months at University, I adore this project and worked really hard to achieve the best results possible for my degree show. Last night was my degree show in Preston which was lovely being able to show my family what I have been working on for last 6 months. I also got nominated for a Creative Focus award which was amazing,  really did not expect to have received the email inviting me to the awards! It was a lovely ceremony  :) The next exhibition is in London next week which I am so excited for, so happy I have the chance to go, hard work really does pay off and I have loved university so much! 
Join us in London!
