13th April 1996 – I was born; inexplicably clad in full-body, paint-covered overalls.
– fast forward –
A lot of the work I create now is with ink, and I’m constantly looking for ways to push my material to do something new, especially something that it’s not supposed to do.
Ultimately it’s a curiosity that drives me; a curiosity with what materials can do, and a curiosity with transforming an image. I love to see a tiny scrap of information (photograph, drawing, a note, a memory) become something of magic, intrigue, and strangeness. It reveals how close our own reality is to something ‘other’.
I graduated from Loughborough University in 2018, and I am now based in Croydon, UK. Embarking on another leg of the journey makes me look back to the first step: The time I was disqualified from my primary school’s christmas pudding design competition upon suspicions of tracing my design off an existing one.
It was all me, baby.
That put the wheels in motion.
