Biography

I am an emerging visual Artist and Designer operating in the Midlands. My artworks focus on contemporary culture, specifically everyday symbolism or personal thoughts and experiences.

As a medium, I am interested in developing my hand-drawn work. I tend to digitalise my drawings to experiment with various manipulations and colouring. Or, vice versa, I convert print-based media to traditional methods. I hope to develop my printing knowledge to craft my own pieces in their entirety – bridging the gap between technology, design, product, and artist.

I also produce artwork that looks inwards, stimulating personal emotions and memories in viewers. Or artwork that looks outward towards others; projecting an idea or observation. My inspiration is, therefore, mine and my viewers experience contemporary society. Often drawing attention to that which is overlooked or forgotten. I hope viewers will have their day-to-day perspectives and thinking challenged, or even shifted, by viewing my work.
