I studied Painting at Camberwell College of Art, graduating in 2013. My art practice has always involved creating kaleidoscopic and fragmented fantasy worlds. This has been expressed in a range of media; painting, collage, photography, film and laterally drawing. I have a keen interest in community art and collaborating with other artists where shared ideas in an interdisciplinary approach can be explored.
My designs are drawn from my conscious and subconscious thoughts. They flow from a meditative state, focusing and clarifying my mind whilst blurring the lines between fantasy and reality. They are inspired by observing and responding to the world around me; shapes, colours, patterns, emotions, and sounds for example. With this specific style of working, I don’t have a pre-conceived idea of what the overall image will look like, allowing the process to unravel and for the piece to find its own conclusion. This mindful approach feeds my art practice. My most recent and ongoing project, ‘Yellow Brick Road’ has been questioning identity and which path to take in a vibrant city like London, where the range of choice can feel overwhelming and exciting at the same time.
Currently my drawings are being worked into a range of products from bespoke art pieces, limited edition prints, home furnishings, hand drawn ceramics and glassware.
