I am a London based Illustrator and designer, my career in art&design began with a ba in 3d design at manchester met university, where i specialised in innovative furniture based on simple construction and manufacture.
through design, drawing has become the backbone of my thinking and making. this has led me to focus my interests in graphic illustration.
MY WORK IS DETERMINED BY A PROCESS WHEREBY RECONSTRUCTING THE GLOSSY POPULAR IMAGE FORMS THE BASE; THIS IMAGE IS THEN TAKEN THROUGH A METHOD WHICH I HAVE DEVELOPED COMBINING TRADITIONAL AND DIGITAL DRAWING WITH CUT AND PASTE COLLAGE TECHNIQUES. THE FINAL ILLUSTRATION IS THE RESULT OF THE HUMBLE BIRO PEN, EXPLORING THE INNER PSYCHE, GEOMETRY AND THE SURREAL, BUT IS DEEPLY ROOTED IN REALISM.
My creative interests have been influenced by the mundane realities of todays society that others can relate to. mc escher, sacred geometry and glossy magazine also play huge part in my work.
