Rose Bibby, who is 19, is looking to achieve great things in her Art Foundation later this year after already securing an A in Fine Art and A* in her Textiles A-Level.
That’s after her two brothers and a sister all achieved Art & Design qualifications at Priestley and went on to excellent university places and careers.
“I feel there is some expectation on me, but the good thing is my tutors understand I am my own person and know I have my own way of working,” said Rose, who previously attended Sir Thomas Boteler.
Part of Rose’s work has been exploring the theme of evolution whilst taking inspiration from the work of other artists.
In Fine Art, one group challenge involved building an archway using cardboard boxes to illustrate the passage of time.
“It helps being in a group when you are working on a larger scale,” said Rose, who is from Latchford.
“You definitely end up with a different interpretation than if you were to work on your own.”
Rose hopes to go on to study Fine Art at Glasgow or Northumbria University.
Textiles Tutor Emma Lingard said: “Rose has been an exceptional student and has utilised every opportunity offered by college to develop her artwork further. We look forward to seeing her progress as an artist in the future.”
