Art has always been part of my life. From the age of six I used to visit an art teacher next door, which I believe is when my passion for creating took hold.

I graduated from UAL – Chelsea College of Arts in 2007 and returned to my home city of Bristol where I live and make art.

My art takes different forms from painting, resin reliefs with found objects and portraiture. My portraits are usually of people I know, celebrating and exploring the individual’s character and context. I use my work surface to explore depth, reality and illusion, as well as semiotics and symbolism.

I see my work as internal reflection made visible. My practice is primarily focussed on the various ways we experience life, relate to others, and our endeavour to transcend the human condition.
