I am a current student at the University of Derby studying Creative Expressive Therapies. I am an inspiring art therapist and currently in my 3rd year of studying my degree. Recently, I have just finished my internship at Artcore, therefore I am already aware of the projects aim and have enjoyed being a part of all the sessions held at Arboretum Park this summer. I have learnt a lot about the history and heritage when walking around the park itself, but I have also done some research on my own to gain a better understanding of the park in relation to the local community. I wish to demonstrate my skills as a young, aspiring artist and want my first appearance as a public artist to be taken seriously.
