Debra Jayne – Student profile

Motivated by her creativity, Debra Jayne decided to return to education as a mature student to study FdA Photography and Digital Imaging.

“After many years of quieting my creative mind to concentrate on being a mum, I now feel that there are no limits to what I can do.”

Debra Jayne, from Sheffield has now completed her foundation degree and intends to continue her journey at Truro College to study BA (Hons) Applied Media. This will complete her full degree qualification, thanks to the smaller class sizes and 1-1 support on offer from all staff and tutors.

“I have found the lecturers, technicians and all other staff in the Truro College, Fal Building to be wonderful, so it would make no sense for me to change a thing.”

As part of the course, Debra also had several opportunities to exhibit her imaginative photography at various independent galleries in Cornwall.

Course leader Marcus Way said: “It is so terrific that through the group’s team work and initiative, students managed to organise amazing, diverse exhibitions that showcased some of their finest images.”

Having already published her work in the Truro College ‘On Course’ magazine as well as several local newspapers, Debra hopes to continue her artistic streak, aiming high with her future endeavours.

Building on her talent and developing her potential throughout the course, Debra challenged herself to complete a media moving image project in the second year of the degree. Through collaboration with various artists and networking with local businesses, she was able to gain valuable insight and understanding from the experience.

Media Technician Dan Cook worked closely with Debra on this project and was complimentary about her achievements: “Working with Debra was like a breath of fresh air, her incredible work ethic; vision and focus were inspiring - a real pleasure to work with!”
