Biography

I have always perused my creativity, having inherited handmade wooden workstations bursting full of oil paints, brushes and palette knifes from my Taid; whom was also a keen painter. I studied 'Fine Art' at Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London) graduating in 2008. My practice explores painting; mainly working in spray-paint, emulsion & acrylic.


My practice focuses on colour theory, I often use abandoned paintings as a base for some of my works, otherwise i start with a blank canvas. I also like to dabble in print-making, specialising in screen-printing. I use inspiration from my works to make craft items & jewellery to sell online and at craft markets. I focus on colour theory and abstract perceptions.


Born in North Wales, UK in 1985; I currently live and work in North West England.

Artist Statement

I twist fractal ideology with abstract aesthetic repetition; merging the two to create my own visual chaotic creations. Fractal theory is ingrained into nature and throughout the cosmos. Together with modern aesthetic repetition; I relate western culture and the way in which life is patterned through social conditioning, advertising and social media. By merging the two ideas i blend the ideology of pattern; intrinsically focussing on creating chaotic abstract responses through aesthetic sensibilities, experimental play and pattern manipulation.
