  • As an artist I enjoy using a variety of media, often experimenting with distinctive styles and tones. I use photographic imagery as inspiration for my paintings.

    I use visual images to relate to day-to-day issues that are often hard for people to express and explain, such as mental health, social anxiety and how people reflect on them in their lives. I create a non-singular vision; each work could relate to a concept or theme, which could equally stand on its own.

    My ideas are grounded. However, my imagery is dimensional so others may see this as fictional. These ideas could be seen as horror, fantasy, or surrealism. I develop them further using materials, techniques and skills that can reflect personal life and growth and how people deal with them. The technique used in my latest work gives it a cinematography look, inverting and installing the images to some classic sci-fi and groundwork movies, with imagery from the modern day. My work has a sense of being both finished and unfinished, giving the impression I cannot identify what I am seeing and feeling. I use distinctive colors and light or dark tones to distinguish myself and my surroundings.

    Limitations, flaws, faith, and uncontrolled emotions are a specific interest of mine, as well as my use of a variety of non-conventional media including materials and the process of the art techniques.
