I paint people and things, and things on people. I work in oil ,acrylic, pen and ink, and also creative make up / body painting to create living art. My paintings focus on portraiture and personalities, and I am currently working on a series exploring loneliness in the city, which I hope to exhibit in Autumn 2018 . I also customise jackets, focusing on painting on textiles to produce wearable art.
Lancashire born and bred, I left for the bright lights of Laaaandon town at 18 to study Illustration at Camberwell College of Art & Design. After graduating, I entered the world of entertainment to avoid a boring job, working as a touring burlesque dancer and fire performer, learning stage make up and body paint on the go.
Now I'm back to my roots of drawing, painting and customising jackets all day, everyday, working towards a tattoo apprenticeship, and although I miss my performing days, I also enjoy not setting fire to things on stage anymore :) You can support my art practice by checking out my Etsy store here :
