I am based in Old Street: integrated in the heart of Central London, here I have grown to nurture my skills as a creative. I like to explore the potential of the subliminal message. As a creative, I have always established that art is a metaphoric representation of life. My passion has always been about humanity and the challenge is finding unorthodox ways to tell, what I believe to be real, critical stories. As Rauschenberg famously said, ‘My concern is never art, but always what art can be used for.’Locked Pro Plan feature

Beginning to actively think of life as an extended metaphor whereby every substance and living organism is cultivated by a system.
