About Me

Liverpool, United Kingdom
My work has developed a lot over the 3 years I've studied for my degree. It has evolved into a body of work that deals with the human form as an environment. I've mapped and explored my own body inside and out in many ways through print, drawing and various media as a type of research to address self identity

I've recently been thinking a lot about the gender issues within art. Being a male artist and using what is stereotypically considered "feminine" media I come across people who question why I use fabrics and stitching.

Its made me look to other male artists who challenge these stereotypes. Such as Grayson Perry. Who's recently been working on 'The Walthamstow Tapestry'

Welcome to my blog! :)

This page is primarily a documentation of my art work I create. I'm a BA Fine Art, Mixed Media Student currently in my final year of my degree.

My work deals with ideas of the fragility of the human condition and often consists of images of my own body. I tend to work with materials that reflect the delicacy of the human form such as stitch and fabrics. My drawing style i like to describe as a "nervous" line, which also ties in with the themes of all my work.
