    About your tutor

    Kelsey Cruz-Martin is an artist and screen print technician. In 2018, Kelsey graduated from Bath Spa with a first-class BA (Hons) Fine Art. During her degree, she developed a practice that experimented heavily with sound and print.

    With a background in Fashion and Textile Design, (Central Institution of Technology, Perth, Western Australia) Kelsey's love for traditional image-making goes hand-in-hand with her current artist practice; exploring the realms of language, traditional print, and creating immersive installations combining sound and print.
