About me
I am a visual artist living and working in London, a graduate of Bath Spa University having attained a BA (Hons) Contemporary Art and Professional Studies degree (2011-2014). My motivations to pursue a career as a visual artist stems from interests in the arts and understanding its role as a catalyst for social change and dialogue. I work in a variety of media ranging from collage/mixed media, photography, digital/graphics as a means to translate my ideas.
