Artist/Illustrator and recent graduate of Fine Art Manchester Metropolitan University working between Manchester and Liverpool.
“My work is initially a portrait of my futile search for knowledge, in the face of dyslexia. My practice is inspired by vintage journals of science, geometry and natural history all of which I wish I could academically conquer. I create seemingly scientific drawings, prompting viewers to read them in such a way as to gain knowledge. After realizing that this is impossible and that the visual languages of science are orphaned from their keys, these decontextualised images will be viewed in a new light. Harsh lines of labels,even letters, become abstract, and new meanings can be found. I have consolidated my research to create a visual language of my own. Mark making found from vintage zoological plates combine with geometry diagrams and pattern from scientific graphs and become symbols, making the viewer question if these images of science, nature, mystical or the occult.”
