About me

I’ve been an artist since I can remember. The first indicator of slight creative prowess; the time I coloured in the families TV with black crayons at 3, expressing abstract postmodernism, and decorated the living rooms cream couch reminiscent of Jackson Pollock. Now at 21, two large fine art tattoos and a dramatic hair cut later, I’ve earned a BA degree in games design and art, harnessing my artistic skill to branch into more design focused work. I’ve explored various different artist avenues, adopting digital art as one of my primary mediums. From my artistic exploration, i’ve been able to pull back some of my tendencies for realism and explore avenues which focus more in illustration as opposed to fine art. Alongside my degree work, i’ve provided art for the Wessex scene magazine, students personal brands and dissertation publications, allowing me to embrace other people's briefs with enthusiasm and passion. The main takeaway from the course; an enhanced love of research and exploration, stemming from a love of psychology and natural curiosity (read: nosiness and annoying, random questioning)
