He had designed a selection of CD covers, Video sleeves and t-shirts. He said, "When I finish my course at Saltash College I am hoping to go on to study Fine Art & Graphics at Plymouth College of Art & Design. Ultimately I want to be a Graphic Designer - it's what I love doing." 18 year old Becky Crookall, from Launceston was also displaying her work. It showed an impressive collection including sculpture, photography and fine art self-portraits. She said, "It has been a successful exhibition, lots of people have come along to see our work.
