I am an illustrator and print maker based in Bristol, UK. My paintings, drawings and prints tend to document themed within topography and psycho geography Graphic icons and motifs taken from shapes found in our natural and urbanised environments are integral to my image making. Shapes and patterns feature heavily in my work. Brick walls, waves, flowers, rock formations, industrial equipment and religious iconography amongst other themes reoccur in different contexts throughout. My visual language swings between abstraction and graphic compositions and often pattern-rich aesthetics synonymous with European Folk Art. As a keen sketchbook-keeper my work tends to manifest from travel sketches and inconsequential drawings into collages and digital manipulations of pen and brush work. My process relies on building pictures organically. Developing shapes and motifs on paper or acetate allows imagery to be overlapped, overdrawn, scratched, erased or cut out. Themes and arcing ideas present themselves through the arranging and composing of these fragments. My work has been featured in exhibitions in both London and Bristol. I have been the finalist in international illustration competitions. And some of my collaborators include contemporary Clothing Brand 'Olive'. My prints and posters are stocked in stores in Bristol and London as well as online creative platforms such as DROOL.
