About

Never content with just one medium, my work has constantly changed, either from traditional drawings, paintings, photography or clay through to photogrammetry, digital sculpting, motion graphics, VR and beyond – I find myself always experimenting and lean into an art process which is playfully curious for discovery.

Two major themes beat strongly at the heart of my work, one is a desire to push what portraiture can be – Exploring the beauty of the human form, what motivates us as people, the darkness found in trauma and of the spaces we inhabit. The second, is a love for colour, colours that create an emotional impact both for myself during the creation process and for the viewers of the works. Both streams of my practice are searching for a form of grace, one by creating beautifully broken vignettes of humanity and the other by teasing out of the viewer the feeling of simple joy from the aesthetics of colour and form.

I'm always interested in artistic collaborations so feel free to reach out and say Hola.
