Born in 1989 and raised in rural Suffolk, where I currently reside, I grew up juggling two of his first loves: music and art. At 19, I moved to Leeds, West Yorkshire to complete a music degree at Leeds College of Music, specialising in singing and composition. I address both music and art with a similar ethos: charisma, drama, experimentation and, above all, enjoyment.
As a rule, I try to work quite impulsively, utilising whatever can be found in the vicinity to concoct a rich playground of materials: hoover bags, parcel tape, old (clean!) clothing, candles or bog roll - giving 'ugly' items a chance at glamour. I then let this playful texture sing through the paint, resulting in an organic and unique creation.
I am a member of East Anglia's Artworks group and I am a regular performer, musician and workshop deliverer in schools and as part of Aldeburgh Music.
