I have always been a very visual person, there isn’t one distinct moment because it has always just been a part of who I am.

How would you describe your style? What makes your art special?

My style is very heavily influenced by colour. That’s easy to see, but also it’s about the interplay between line, colour and form and the juxtapositions and combinations between these elements.How do you go about developing your work?

I like to allow my subconscious to develop my work. I like to be guided by my intuition and for it to tell me when to stop or when something is not quite finished yet and needs tweaking.Who or what influences you? 

My mood and environment really influence the work I make. All of my work is a subconscious reflection of what I’m surrounded by.

What are you planning to do next?

I’m planning world domination so watch out.Instagram
