About

I am a avid believer of making the best out of whats given to us. Dabbling in creating of all kinds, I have started building a repritoire of skills. I enjoy practicing drawing, sewing, painting, printmaking and have just recently focused my creative juices on jewlery making. Discovering the joys of upcycling old Starbucks gift cards that would otherwise have been thrown out. I upcycle materials we would normaly never think twice about and make them into beautiful jewellery. I have fallen in love with recycling patterns from old starbucks gift cards.

The art I create is generally very technical, intricate and time consuming. I play around with surface planes, background settings, thickness of lines and amount of detail to enhance the idea behind my work. In most media, particularly drawing, painting, and printmaking, I focus on the interaction of lines to bring my scenes to life. The…

The art I create is generally very technical, intricate and time consuming. I play around with surface planes, background settings, thickness of lines and amount of detail to enhance the idea behind my work. In most media, particularly drawing, painting, and printmaking, I focus on the interaction of lines to bring my scenes to life. The way a line sits on a surface and how it communicates with the line beside it, means everything. My main objective is to bring attention to the beauty in everyday life. For the most part, my work remains as realistic as possible.

I draw inspiration from Francisco de Goya prints; the scenes he chose and the way he represented them. The choice of an image is crucial. For me it must be engaging yet understated, symmetrical yet awkward. I use exaggeration of light and dark, thick and thin to keep the composition interesting and flowing. Vertigo is a tool that is normally the most eye-catching. I have chosen images that give you a sense of unease and confusion, forcing my audience to look closer at the details and to keep things dynamic.

Travel is the most important thing to life. The world is meant to be explored and cultures meant to be experienced. Time is too short and people need to enjoy the little things. Make the unimportant, important; a day at the market, a leisurely bicycle ride or an extra long coffee break. These are the things that get us through the day and help us become who we are. These moments sculpt us, mould us and ultimately change us. My artwork captures those moments, allowing the enjoyment to last just a little bit longer.
