Earlier in the year for my professional studies lesson, I was asked to produce an essay and PowerPoint on my chosen favourite designer maker who I aspire to be like. This gave us a rare chance to interview our chosen artist, I was lucky enough to gather a whole lot of information which was kindly provided of Amy Tavern. Where she was very helpful, in asking my never ending list of questions and even offered me some advice!

work very hard.’
‘I think being realistic is very, very important…know your limits, set goals, both personal and business for 1 year, 3 years, 5 years, 10 years and
Revisit and revise your list occasionally. Live within your means and work toward your goals.’
Then surprisingly she has recently just posted a blog post, mentioning all students which have interviewed her over the years for essays/blogs/ect, including me too!

Was the title of our new brief, giving us the chance to take our chosen topic for our dissertation, and turn it into an on-going theme for our 7 week deign brief, with the outcome of creating an ‘artist book’ with a strong concept within our final piece.
Two weeks in and we’ve already got a whole lot of work along with sampling and researching to do!
My bay is getting busy already with sketch book pages EVERYWHERE, I’m wanting to focus my theme upon the downfall to the muse, so from there I've being looking into colors along with their meanings to represent certain elements of their lives as well as symbols that are related to death. And from yesterday I've being looking into flowers as a substitute to the muse themselves as the two seem to resemble each other, looking into the simple way of their journey of deterioration of life.
