This document charts my development as an artist over the last five years on the Professional Doctorate in Fine Art at the University of East London. It begins with a reflection on the work done on B.A and M.A. in Fine Art, at Middlesex University and the University of East London respectively. The origin of my work lies in traumatic and painful life experiences that at the time of their occurrence almost effectively ended my practice. In hindsight it is clear that these experiences have provided the continuing motivation for my research and art practice, as well as its content. The report presents in chronological order of my engagement with theories of the mechanisms of societal power and control, and describes the assimilation of these ideas into my developing visual projects. The report begins with the autobiographical background to my practice, followed by the Creative Practice and Theory section which contextualizes the different strands of my research, and concludes with my Professional Practice which outlines the artistic activities I embarked on during the five years of the doctorate programme.
