About Artist

My artistic philosophy is to work hard and always seek to break new boundaries. I also subscribe to a Punk Rock DIY ethos and have been involved in several art projects - both setting up, contributing and promoting - see Art Group info below. I enjoy collaboration and exploration.
For me, painting helps me see the world with new eyes and to enliven the world in colour and mess with form, the electronic music I produce helps me to explore a fresh world of sound and I deeply appreciate boundary smashing ( I am generally only interested in finding new sounds and pushing things forward).
My film work consists of creative collaborations with a newly graduated filmmaker called Jeremy who I was lucky enough to share a house with in 2015, and a series of my own films which I have made to showcase my music and artistic interests.
Finally I have always loved to write poetry as it helps me get to the core of my emotional and intellectual being and there are a selection of them on here for you to read.

Depends on the commission, for portraits I would like to spend some time with the subject and also have photos to work from, for more abstract commissions or murals just need a clear brief.
