I am a fine art painter, taking influences from the genres of street art, illustration, textiles and all things vintage. I predominantly work in acrylic complemented with mixed media including; markers, spray paints, inks and pastels.
I studied Fine Art at Leeds College of Art and Liverpool John Moores University.
I am currently exploring portraiture within a contemporary context, producing work that looks at how we present ourselves to others through social media and the complexities of human interaction. I am interested in depicting strong and empowered people and in contrast the fragile and vulnerable.
Further topics of interest include; body positivity, diversity, discrimination, stigma and technology.
I have exhibited in many large and small group shows. I have had two solo exhibitions to date and my next one will be in October 2015
