I have loved animation ever since primary school when I created my first stop motion animation. Since being at university, I have loved learning the different aspects within animation, but since being little, my dream job would be to work for Disney doing 3D Animation. Which why I chose to create a 3D animation for my final project. This is called My story.

My final animation is about a teenage girl struggling with bullying while she is at school. The story goes through her life at high school and shows what her life is like to be bullied and what the bully has done to her. It is based on someone’s experience on bullying and was polite enough to tell her story and how it has affected her now.


A story about a 16-year-old girl being bullied at school. My film is based on someone’s experience with being bullied, how she felt, what the bullies did and how it has affected her then and now. I want to spread a message saying that bullying is bad and that it is a serious problem for a lot of people. I include facts at the end to show how much bullying has impacted a lot of people’s lives.

Relight of my final project from university. Uses both dynamic lighting & baked with raytraced reflections.  Most of my assets are using a POM trim sheet master material. Some traditionally baked and textured.  No megascans in this project, instead created my own from photographs I took.

Happy Pawz is an independent dog walking and pet sitting service situated in Rotherfield, East Sussex. This business is run by 18 year old Sophie Baldwin. I contacted Sophie asking if she needed me to help boost her business and gain more attention. She happily welcomed my help and so I began my work. My idea was to create a new logo, a poster to promote her business, boost her social media presence and design a website. The main aim was to create different ways in which people could contact her and not be limited to one method.

I am interested in museum and heritage management in all aspects; however, I have had a particular focus on audience engagement and methods of digital engagement. These have been my focus for research during my MA as I completed a research project addressing digital engagement with museums and heritage sites during the COVID-19 pandemic and my dissertation addressed the changes as museums and heritage sites reopened to the public. I also have a strong interest in Archaeology as I studied an Archaeology for my undergraduate degree at University of Sheffield. 

Reflective journal entry- Kennewick Man
This is the first reflective journal entry I wrote for the course and explore my feelings around repatriation which I then went on to write my end of term essay on. Having studied Archaeology I find repatriation of archaeological finds very interesting and have had to think carefully about what the right balance between scientific study and respecting other cultures is as archaeology often seems like a Western idea forced on other cultures. However, as I explored later in my essay many indigenous cultures are developing their own archaeological investigations and gaining more protection for their heritage in law. 

How do museums see themselves?
As I was developing my ideas for one of my end of term essays I began to examine the role of museums in health and wellbeing, this reflective journal entry related to that exploration of ideas. It focused on the way that the museums themselves view their role and how that role has changed over time from museums being a place purely for research and the conservation of artefact to looking to serve the community around them and promote health and wellbeing. I chose to focus the essay which developed from this around museums’ role in dementia care as it is a topic that has personal meaning for me. 

Research Project Proposal 
This research project focused my interests towards audience engagement and digital engagement, it took the current issue of COVID-19 and addressed how museums and heritage sites were overcoming the lockdown restrictions to still provide a service for their visitors. It was of particular interest to me as it was a current issue that had potential implications for museums and heritage sites. These interests then developed into other projects for instance my funding application in Semester 2 proposed the development of an App for Creswell Crags to improve visitor engagement and access to the site, the group project looked at ways to create profit from digital resources and I focused on the expansion of a Patreon service. Finally, my dissertation addressed how audience engagement was again changing as museums and heritage sites were able to open their doors again in Spring 2021 and the impact of the social distancing measures on visitor and staff experiences. 

Research Methods Presentation 
This presentation shows the development of my ideas from my research proposal and the early stages of my research. It has a focus on the methods used for the research along with the beginnings of the results from the questionnaire I created and distributed.

I am currently studying an MA in Arts and Cultural Management. Throughout, I have focussed my research on alternative forms of education, specifically in museums. This is because I really believe cultural settings can offer uniquely interactive and engaging experiences that help develop important core skills for children and young people, in an enjoyable way where they are motivated to learn. I would love to find work that helps connect children and young people from all backgrounds, ages, and abilities to these experiences. 

Reflective journal entry- Kelham Island
During the MA, we were encouraged to critically reflect on what we were learning about the cultural sector in terms of our personal experiences and opinions via a journal. Below is my reflection on the cultural identity of Kelham Island, a local hub of gentrification, after exploring the place of art in the public sphere. 

Module reflection
This is another reflective journal post which I wrote towards the end of the first trimester of my MA. I feel it gives a good representation of why I chose to do the course, but also how my perceptions of cultural engagement have adapted and evolved with what we learned. 

Research methods abstract
This is the abstract of a research project I recently completed looking at how teachers have engaged with learning activity developed by a museum during COVID. Hopefully, this gives a sense of what approach the research took, how data was collected and analysed, and the implications of the findings.
