Welcome to my website, take your time to explore my work and get in touch for commission enquiries or if you want to know more.
“Once upon a time, I thought faeries lived only in books, old folktales, and the past. That was before they burst upon my life as vibrant, luminous beings, permeating my art and my everyday existence, causing glorious havoc.”
I always felt an overwhelming pressure to ‘say something’ with my art, and the frustration came when I realized how impossible it felt to get my thoughts and feelings across. The more and more I created, the more I felt my ‘inner world’ slipping out and becoming tactile. My sculptures became bigger and more dominating as the years went on. I wasn’t planning anything, and nothing had any direction, but whenever a piece was finished, I felt I had always known it would exist as if my thoughts had grown out of me. However, I have often felt very performative as I had never anticipated how personal my work would feel, and the more I shared, the more naked I felt. My inner world had never been seen by anyone before, even myself. I didn’t want to share everything as I didn’t feel ready to be seen too clearly. I wanted to remain vague as I knew I wouldn’t be able to explain what any of it meant, so I began to give the bare minimum to avoid lying. No one piece means anything in particular, but once I look at all the details I have put in, I can see what they mean to me.

I was recently a part of the final fine art exhibition as a student at Solent University, where I had the honour of being painted by the brilliant oil painter George Hawkins @georgehawkinsart on Instagram. The first time I looked at this painting, it felt like the first time seeing myself.
