My Story

I produce paintings that are influenced by my everyday surroundings, commenting on the social structures within society. I aim to do this by creating theory-based artwork which focuses on portraiture and the relationship a portrait can have to a viewer.

Studying my master's at The Glasgow School of Art allowed me to develop those skills as a painter and explore the boundaries of art theory within portraiture. Having left the art school in 2017, I felt exhausted, deflated and unmotivated with my artwork. Meaning, I didn't pick up a paint brush for almost two years, until the first lockdown.

During the first lockdown I began to utilise my skills as a painter and collaborate new ideas, heavily focused upon sports teams across Merseyside. I work full-time as an order manager for BT but I hope one day my passion for painting turns into a full-time possibility.
