London based Mixed-Media Artist
The title MIXED UP describes the style of my work, the inspiration for my work, the material for my work and ultimately the images I produce.
The human and material landscape is where I draw my inspiration. The environment I live in and the world I travel through provides a limitless source of references that enthuse, intrigue and excite.
My own photography or ‘found’ materials provide me with the origins from which my artwork is created. I am always striving to find ways of adding another visual ‘layer’ to the inherently two-dimensional nature of my source.
The eclectic nature of the editions of work I produce are a reflection of my restless ‘digging’, either visually or literally. Every corner you turn or old box you dig through can send you off on an entirely new adventure.
