Printmaking, Publishing, Illustration, Textiles

“Most of my work revolves around my emotions and responses to trauma or dealing with difficult emotions. Colour is another very important part of my practice, I love colours and feel they speak so much in artwork. Bright colours especially are eye catching and I find they capture the viewer’s attention well. I spend a lot of time choosing colours and pairing them with others in order to create complex yet complimentary palettes. I use art as a means of healing and expression that I otherwise have trouble communicating. I call myself a multidisciplinary artist as it encompasses many mediums, styles and disciplines and does not limit me to simply being an artist, designer, illustrator etc. With these multiple mediums I like to intertwine them and combine various substrates in experimentation. I feel combining media and substrates speaks to the tangle of emotions I struggle with and showcase in my practice.”
