Introducing…

My name is Vicki Cook and I am currently studying BA Fine Art at Staffordshire University. I’m in my third year at the moment and thoroughly enjoying it!

My plan is to start my own business at the end of third year, but more to come on that later.

Themes and interests that run through a lot of my artwork are, but not limited to, the following:

  • Contrast between the personal and impersonal (or seeing the personal from a detached point of view).
  • Space and the effect it has on us
  • Text in art
  • Mental illness in general
  • OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) & self-harm (and specifically the repetition and ritual within that).

Please be aware that ALL material on this blog (writing/images/video/sound/animation etc) is copyrighted to myself (© Vicki Cook) unless otherwise stated. If you would like to use any of this material, please contact me. Any breach of this copyright will be challenged.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to make them on the posts. Discussion/questioning is encouraged, however, openly crude, offensive or abusive comments will be deleted.

If you would like to contact me personally about work, commissions, or really anything else unsuitable for the blog, please feel free to message me on AOL/AIM or email me using the contact details at the bottom of the side bar.
