BA (Hons) Fine Art
My practice is grounded in ideas of the everyday and its subjectivity. Many of my paintings speak to me through a lens of disrupted visual expectations, be that through a reflection, the obscuring of a stained window, or the rippling of water. The imagery, though commonplace at first glance, cements a feeling of being outside of the event looking in. This aligns with my identity as an outsider in the UK, as well as an outsider to my own experiences as I grapple with dissociation.

Many of the collaborations and exhibitions I have been involved in have the common theme of mental health. It is very important to me to be involved in conversations around difficult topics such as addiction, abuse, and anxiety. I plan to keep working on these projects with hope that it will help others as the making of art helps me.
While I consider oil and acrylic painting to be the cornerstones of my work, I have extensive experience in screen printing, sculpture, digital artwork, and photography.
