BA (Hons) Illustration
My practice is focused on research-based projects which revolve around our perception of reality and our contrasting experiences of it. Following a trip to Los Angeles, one particular focus for me has been the idealised American Dream of the 1960s and the romanticised allure of ‘hitting the road’ and heading West. These ideas are embodied by the city of LA, a focal point for a lot of my recent work which seeks to break down and question the utopian view of the road and reveal a hidden grittier reality.
My work is influenced by film cinematics which is reflected in my choices of composition, colour and lighting, which I use to produce atmospheric and immersive imagery. Research and experimentation define my painting practice, each side constantly evolving and informing the other, inspiring new work and areas of investigation.
