Artist/Illustrator and graduate of Fine Art at Manchester Metropolitan University working in the North West of England.


         “My practice began as a portrait of my futile search for knowledge, in the face of dyslexia. I have always been inspired by vintage journals of science, geometry and natural history, all of which I wish I could academically conquer. I began creating 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, I aimed for these decontextualised images to be viewed in a new light. Harsh lines of labels, even letters, became abstract, and new meanings would be found. I have since consolidated my research to create a visual language of my own. Mark making inspired by vintage zoological plates combine with geometry diagrams and pattern from scientific graphs become symbols, making the viewer question if these are images of science, nature, mystical or the occult.”

         "Since completing my studies I have channeled my practice away from fine art and towards illustration. I have been commissioned to design artwork for brand logos, apparel, album covers, skateboards and more. If a brand, company or band is interested in working with me feel free to use contact form below."
