I discovered that I had creative and artistic talents at an early age, and was producing watercolour paintings from about the age of 13. I later went on to study art at Diploma level.
I began a degree in Fine Art, but found it just wasn’t for me.
I must have had many artistic influences in my life, but I think the greatest of these have been the Pre-Raphaelites , John William Waterhouse and Frederic Leighton. I have also been drawn to Art Nouveau and the renaissance period from an early age.
I put my talent and creativity to one side for many years, but my passion has recently been reignited.
I have a very broad style, as you can see, which incorporates many different media. I enjoy a challenge and often look to learn new techniques or work with different materials; I’ll often ask myself, “How can I replicate how that looks?” I have produced work in 2D and 3D.
I have a great passion for the wizarding world of JK Rowling and have recently been working on pieces based around the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them films, this has included replica props. I’m a great admirer of the work of Minalima, who are responsible for the graphic art in the films. I would love to work in prop making.
I draw inspiration from the fantastical, the macabre and from literature. I have produced several pieces with these themes at their heart. Many of my pieces, in particular the 3D work, are one-of-a-kind. Some of my 2D work is available as prints.
I am happy to discuss commissions with anyone who might be interested in my work.
