Now having curated her first exhibition at UEL's Way Out East Gallery, Justine sees this as an opportunity to revisit the place where she started her journey in fine art.
Justine said, "I have great memories of UEL, I spent most of my time in the sculpture and print workshop developing my work. I formed some great friendships not only with students but with tutors and the technicians and still keep in touch today. I now share a studio with a fellow former student who is featured in this exhibition.
"My advice to any aspiring artist, of which I am still one, is to continue developing your work and focus on getting a studio space. Even if you are not feeling particular inspired, just spend time in your studio, something will come.
"Faisal Abdu' Allah, who was my tutor at UEL, said in our first ever seminar: 'You are all artists now' which was great to hear because there will be times where you doubt your ability. I try to remember his words to keep me going."
