“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”

I grew up in a very creative and artistic environment with my father as an artist also so art was always a huge part of my life. From a very young age I was introduced to the art world by visiting galleries and museums whilst visiting various countries. I began drawing as a child and realised that I wanted to do something creative very early on, I would often get involved with local art projects with school and college and started a career in the tattoo Industry at 19.

I then went on to own and run my own tattoo and art studio for nearly two years before moving abroad briefly. I now work for a Criminal justice charity in Leeds and study psychology with counselling (BSC) full time alongside. I still try and paint as much as I can, and my job often involves creative outlets such as making a monthly newsletter and I design prints for the service. Most of my work is mainly abstract Landscapes and I work heavily with palette knives and mediums other than a brush, I think with art there is no limit to what you can do or use and I am experimenting with colour as opposed to subject matter much more recently.

I also enjoy drawing the natural world and have always been a huge animal lover, I began the animal head series a couple of years back and took inspiration from stone busts in museums thinking instead of mounting animal heads on walls why not represent them in a more grandeur manner. I take a lot of inspiration from mountain landscapes and water as I find something very dreamlike about these scenes, I also include the moon in most of my images almost like a signature.
