About me

BA (Hons) Fine Art | PGDE | MA Fine Art

Digital illustrator | Painter | Sculptor | Feminist

I am strongly influenced by the feminist and sex positive art movements. My work stems from living with mental illnesses, and how I view myself. A series of digitally illustrated works and photographs of my body in natural poses, showcasing what social media doesn’t usually see. The process of creating this series has allowed me to heal and to love my body, even if it is not deemed ‘socially perfect’. Through therapy I have discovered meaning behind why I hide and change my appearance through body modifications, by adding piercings, tattoos, changing my hair. I am disguising who I was.
