I've been an artist as long as I can remember. It started off with daubs of colour, pictures of soldiers shooting each other, and bubblegum factories.I have not been professionally schooled as an artist since my GCSE’s, preferring to find my own voice rather than be told what art is or how to do it.
I have never stopped working as an artist, despite doing other jobs.
As time has gone on, I have become increasingly interested in how humanity has a symbiotic relationship with technology, we feed off each other and need each other, technology simultaneously liberates us and binds us. It pushes us away from a spiritual existence and drives us to consume and destroy our environment, for this reason we have an essentially schizophrenic relationship with our primal and spiritual selves.
My art is primarily about how I, and we, face the world as human beings and cope with the pressures that this THING we have created puts upon us.
One of my paintings is called 'Magical Journeys', and I feel that that title sums up what I want to do with my work. I want people to travel around the canvas and discover things, to find something new each time they look, and to share in my subconscious, my dreams, and my visions.
The world moves at such a fast pace and we pile things around ourselves, objects, fashions, sensibilities, trends, and material to try to fill the gap. I try in my paintings to get people to look in a mirror, and challenge their ideas about humanity and its place or pace in the world.
I am also part of a comic collective called Underfire Comics.
We write, produce, publish, and market our own independent alternative comic and sell it at conventions and in various outlets around the south east of the UK, and have been doing so successfully for over 4 years.
