My work


My work explores the interplay between freedom of expression and the confines of a more rule-based structure.

 Heavily influenced by graffiti and street art, my paintings seek to consider mark-making, abstraction and the flicker between reality and suggestion.


As a sufferer of depression, my art also attempts to make tangible that overwhelming sense of confusion and emptiness felt by so many with mental health issues - a kind of visual respite from my own head.


I am entirely self-taught, and enjoy working with spray paint, acrylics, watercolour and inks, and often paint on reclaimed materials.

 

 

About me


Currently based between the UK and Italy, I am also a professional musician, photographer and maker. 

I am fascinated by up-cycling and self-sufficiency and look forward to one day building a cabin in the woods - with WiFi.
