About me

I started as a traditional painter using ink and acrylics to create narrative story telling illustrations. Throughout university I have started using my art to express my thoughts and feelings on issues that effect me or others around me. For example sexism in the creative industry, skin disorders and mental health. Beginning to explore the effects of art and how it can benefit peoples lives whilst developing my digital skills so that I could use illustrator, photoshop and procreate to produce mixed media pieces. I hope to continue using my art to help and inspire others and start the conversations that we need to change the world for the better.

These project's show personal and social issues I have addressed throughout my university experience. I enjoy working on projects that address a subject matter that effects me emotionally so that I can create Illustrations that represent my thoughts and feelings. The mediums I tend to use include ink, acrylics and digital painting.
