Graduated from London College of Communication with First class honours degree in BA Sound Arts & Design. Studied BA Fashion & Textile Design and formally educated in fine arts, illustration and sculpture. My work revolves around subconscious lucidity, dream-like imagery and fantastical nightmarish ideas that stem in meditative introspection and carry a emotional impact. I am heavily influenced by Surrealism in featuring elements that seem out of place and nonsensical. I enjoy narrative-forming art, whether it be suggestive, reliant on subjective association or the type that lends explicit conveyance of meaning. But sometimes, my motifs function more as face-value ornamentation. In that, I am interested in conceptual art, illustration, fashion design, video, sound, and literature. I want for my works to be telling, thought-provoking, lyrical and meaningful, though the meaning they might hold is obscure even to me. In drawing, I tend to feature intricately fine, organic lines that reflect influence of Albrecht Dürer, Gustave Doré and Alphonse Mucha. I usually use deep, rich colour tones typical of the Baroque period and along with sfumato technique, which I came to admire in artistry of Leonardo da Vinci. I enjoy the somewhat anatomical connotation some of my drawings may have along with a hallucinatory implication echoing from Salvador Dalí and Hieronymus Bosch.
