Eleanor Beth Haswell is an eighteen year old art student from North East England, who previously studied Fine Art and Graphic Design at Durham Sixth Form Centre and is going on to start Sunderland University and complete the Foundation Degree in Art and Design. Her work is mainly photography based, covering feminist issues such as body shaming in the media, as well as her previous project on domestic violence. Prior to this, Eleanor also created a project based around the cruelty to animals within the cosmetic and fur industry, to which she made a series of advertisements showing the unseen effects. She highlights mainly upon the negative views of body hair within her work, and the perception of beauty that the medias imprints within society today.
Out of education, she runs a North East England female identified arts collective named Clandestine Collective, of which she is also the logo/poster designer. She has also organised and featured in her own exhibition, ‘And So, The Flowers Bloomed’ in Spring 2014, alongside two other artists within Clandestine Collective.
