I am inspired by tribal art, mark making, patterns and vivid colour. I work in a loose, expressive way and find a meditative mind set in order to create marks. I like to work instinctively very rarely second guessing my instincts to form shape and tone. I went to art school in Liverpool - where I worked mainly in three dimensional design. Having never found a single discipline fulfilling enough work across all media - I am not afraid to trial new techniques, materials or ways of working. Embroidery, painting, illustration, sculpting are currently my favourite ways of expressing myself. The inspiration for the majority of my work comes from unresolved emotion, and themes of architecture, structure, unrest and love are common. I am driven by expression; my style adapts with emotion and this often dictates the material choice and overall aesthetic of each piece. A lot of my work features faces, bodies and language. I find these an endless source of inspiration, focussing on the way in which we use our faces to communicate intricate and conflicting emotions. It is simply fascinating to me.
