‘I have always been an artistic kid and that continued through school all the way to university, with the creative projects being the ones were I did the best and felt most comfortable with. I graduated from Coventry University studying Illustration and Graphics in 2014 and I currently live in London.’

‘The biggest influences in my artwork would be memories of my childhood, the TV shows and cartoons I used to watch and the games I used to play when I was younger. In truth I still do that now, that hasn’t changed much. My love for traditional art heavily influences my process of creating my illustrations, the painterly approach I take in rendering my work and the emphasis of layering, physically and metaphorically.

In my opinion the art of discovery is lost nowadays and that is something I keep constant in my work. I want people to draw their own conclusions from my work, I want it to be open to interpretation with endless possibilities.’

‘I’m currently balancing a part time job with freelancing, I have had the opportunity to create an editorial illustration, album covers and a couple commissions. My main focus is creating a sizeable body of work, evolving my style how I can and pushing and collaborating with awesome artists and companies.’
