Artist from Plymouth, UK.|
Unlike many, I wasn't someone who knew exactly what I wanted to be from a young age, despite my constant drawing as a child I never envisioned myself having a career in art until my late teens. Originally from Cornwall, I spent 6 years studying art and design. After leaving school I had hopes of becoming a fashion designer, but soon after starting college realised that I'm terrible at it, but have a knack and an addiction to painting and drawing. Later I moved to Plymouth to study a degree in Fine Art which I graduated from in September 2013, I now work independently on my artwork hoping to someday pursue a career as an illustrator.
I'm a storyteller, I do not consider myself to have a particular 'style' or belong to a particular 'genre' I simply paint what I envision. Working in a variety of mediums (but favouring acrylic paints) my work varies from surreal to realistic, experimental to detailed, dark to colourful, a variety of different styles all with the same intention – to tell a story.
Inspiration for my work can come from anywhere, from life experiences to quotes or song lyrics, I am often seen jotting down notes for future projects. I'm passionate about animals, and show this passion in my work. Whilst studying at university I became known for my paintings of animals and rarely is there an artwork which does not feature one. This passion also lead me to start writing and illustration my own children’s book which was inspired by one of my university paintings. The story is centred on a rabbit… and the moon… named ‘I’ll Give You The Moon’
