Hi, I'm Creativemind

About me 

Hi, I’m Ethan and I’m an artist based in West Cornwall. Don’t ask me to define what type of artist- there’s a reason I chose the vague pseudonym ‘Creativemind’. 

I grew up in Cornwall surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and a vast ocean to stare out at every day, with influences of Bernard Leach and Barbara Hepworth throughout my childhood upbringing in St Ives. I am chronically undecided about most things, so I studied a multi-disciplinary BA(Hons) in Visual Communication  at Leeds Arts Uni, graduating in 2019 (which was a bit of a culture shock for someone from the end of the world). 

My practice mainly encompasses sewing, printmaking,illustration in various combinations and I am heavily influenced by a DIY zero-waste ethos. I am also really interested in humans and the relationships we have with each other and our surroundings. I like to keep a record of curious and mundane things that happen to me and draw people I find interesting as it helps inform and inspire my work and makes for interesting backstories to pieces.
