Habs A Level artists enjoyed a talk from prize winning Fine Artist Shelley Jacobs who has explored a wide range of media and ideas in her work.

Shelley shared her journey from A Level Art, to her degree and masters, and then spoke about some of her current projects. This talk highlighted the importance of the development of personal ideas and connections in an artist’s work, as well as providing great insight to the genre of conceptual art.

The explanations Shelley gave as to how, why and when she took creative leaps or returned to previous themes was particularly interesting for our pupils to consider and relate back to their own practice.
