About me

I have created a fluent study on myself and developed a way of using paint I feel is unique to my practice.

“A Noticeboard For My Mind” during lockdown I had fabric hanging above my bed that I would paint onto whenever I felt necessary, a continuous documentation of thoughts. I want to tackle how we view ourselves, I make a mockery of my self pity. Joking about serious issues opens up a discussion which is my overall aim, people can look at the work then relate to it personally as it doesn’t specifically talk about a certain topic. I use quotes from tv shows or the internet to relate back to issues revolving around social media.
