Story and artwork from Noel Porter
Graduate of the Ulster University, Belfast (otherwise known as ‘The Art College’)
Completed my Foundation Certificate in Art and Design at Ulster University. I then Studied Graphic Communication, which was a Photographic based course, but included Graphics, Drawing, painting, Illustration and also Printmaking. I have worked as a Graphic Designer for many, many years – two Newspapers, two magazines, two Advertising Agencies, and two Graphic Design and Print companies. I also Lectured in England in Yorkshire, Kent and Surrey in Graphics, Fine Art, Design and CAD CAM.
Art has been part of me as well as my life as far back as I can remember. It was noticed in primary school I was outstanding at drawing. I went to Grammar school, where I won the Art prize every year, had my work printed in the school magazine every year and was the only A grade in the whole of the form in exams.
Art college was contemporary Art, I wanted to learn the classic techniques.
Drawing Academy is what I have been looking for to refine my ability.
I want to win so I can develop and pursue a career in Fine Art.
Vote for me so I fine-tune my ability to its penultimate degree and produce impossibly beautiful work!
