About me

I am a digital artist mainly focusing on a more vivid comic style of art. I initially began my project using watercolours but as the pandemic made working on site difficult I decided to switch to digital work.

My project focuses on the landscape as the surrogate character for people to project their emotions onto. I wanted to play with the idea of a comic feeling disturbing and abandoned if you take the characters away. I used spaghetti westerns as influence in my work and have also played on the idea of the infinite scroll of smart phones as a medium to display my work. I ultimately decided to created a video art piece to mimic the idea of the infinite loop.
