About

What is my work about?

I've been a creative person from the age of two, and many of the presents I received were relating to the arts and crafts. Throughout my life, I've always been sketching and experimenting with different types of media.

In 2011 I was awarded a Triple Distinction in BTEC Level 3 Art & Design, a two year course at college. In 2014 I graduated from the University of Kent with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art.

The idea that I could turn my work into a business was something I was always hesitant about, whether what I was creating had a market and an audience, and if it was interesting enough. So after a lot of trial and error and brainstorming, I eventually began to see what themes within my practice seemed to work, and which didn't.

I knew that I wanted to reserve my photography for urban, nature and portraiture, and only until recently have I found that I have a strength in rendering still life compositions on canvas. It's often better to not over complicate things, but my observing the work of others, determining what will be a profitable piece and what won't.

So in 2016, my work can be described as everyday objects depicted in a more poignant way, against an ominous background, so all attention is on the subject itself. My style is realistic but with a painterly influence, and warm tones.
