(b.1986 Keighley)

Contemporary artist based in Bradford, West Yorkshire (UK)

Mixed Media Art  – Painting and Sculpture

I work with spray paint, enamel paint and water on recycled materials such as paper, card, textiles, board and plastics as well as canvas


Artist Statement 

My work explores the theme of erosion and the effects it has on the physical and mental state of a person and the world we live in. If you strip away the problems of everyday life, your spirit steps away from the burdens and helps you to focus on the true nature of life which is to be free and to experience everything you want out of life! Erosion wears away inner light, but it can also clear away the dead weight that clutters your path. I use painting and sculpture to communicate a positive and constructive view of the world!
