About me
I’m a multidisciplinary artist based in London. I have worked mostly as a freelance graphic designer and artist; my expertise lie in the process of bringing creative projects to fruition through my arsenal of technical abilities and precise creative eye.

Video games and music have the greatest influence, from Metal Gear Solid 3 (H.Kojima) and CHERRY BOMB (Tyler the Creator) being some of my favourites in these respective areas.

I had become so inspired when hearing the song “Lazer Gun” by N.E.R.D that I felt I needed to harness that feeling and create something. FLEDGE was the result of this. At the time of creating the first show I had been only posting digital artwork on Instagram.
