Born Manchester, UK
Currently working in Brighton,UK
As an artist I take an experimental approach to the process of image making.
Altering the method of creation is a key part of this
I have worked as part of 2 art collectives.
Both of these focused on the creation of collaborative paintings,
where the different styles of the artists merge into one image.
I have brought this merging of style into my own work,
where the boundaries between my different methods have been broken down,
I see my art as an expression of the emotion present in the process.
The images are rarely planned and evolve over time
as I improvise new ideas constantly throughout the creation of the image.
This is essentially playful, in much the same way that the creation of music is
This is why music has always been my biggest influence, especially experimental and improvised music.
It is not important to me to have a pre-conceived notion or concept to deliver to the viewer
and will always encourage people to draw their own conclusions on 'meaning'
Click for history
I also make tunes occasionally.
Hopefully more for the hearing soon.
