I initially came to college to study biomedical science. Although I enjoyed it, I knew it wasn’t the right course for me. I have always had a love for art so I followed my heart, took a chance and applied for a course in art and design.
During my studies I worked with a range of different people. I learned how to express myself through my work and became more confident. A highlight of the course was painting a mural for a local playgroup.

I would definitely recommend the College to anyone. It is extremely welcoming and the staff and students are great.
I am speechless to have won Student of the Year and feel lucky to have been chosen. It reinforces that I have really achieved something and that my hard work and efforts have
paid off.

I am now studying HND Art and Design. In the longer term I would like to progress to university to study art therapy or train as a teacher.
Kimberley’s lecturer said “Throughout her studies Kimberley showed boundless enthusiasm and ambition, which drove her to produce a vibrant and skilled portfolio beyond her own high expectations. She approached every project with eagerness and excitement. She inspired her peers and contributed to the studio and its wonderful, productive atmosphere.

Kimberley forged a personal interpretation from project briefs and developed a uniquely individual body of work, with a creative identity that is both stylised and potentially marketable at industry level.”
