About Me

My photo
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

New Prints

I recently had an idea for a set of prints I wanted to produce. Since my work is dealing with layers of our personality, hiding certain parts of ourself, wanting to show your true colours and how that relates to clothing. Wearing certain clothing makes us feel differently, Like a costume, our choice of clothing also says alot about us.

I decided to create some simple screen prints to put this idea forward. The bold colours are a contrast to the type of clothing (suits, trousers) - associated with business men and office work. Usually blacks & greys dominate this type of clothing. However by using bright orange and green I'm commenting on the lack of individuality this clothing forces people into, and how uniforms make us all blend in. 

When we see someone in a suit, how do we judge what type of person they are witohut any hint of their true self? whos under the suit?

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.
