My artwork is a direct
expression of myself and the world around me.
From the age of three years old I already knew that I wanted to be
an artist. I was born in 1983 in Orsett, England. I had a bohemian
upbringing raised by my hippie mother growing up surrounded by
artists and musicians. My parents both studied fine art and music.
My mother studied as an artist who specialized in sculpture whilst
my father was a painter who also made and restored antique
furniture. I was influenced
and encouraged by them to create my own ideas from a very early age which has inspired me
to remain to be creative and develop my own style of artistry
throughout the years.
Until I was 14 I
focused my artwork almost entirely around drawing. I was obsessed
with black ink and would rarely use any other colours in my
sketches. After I finished high school I began a fine art
course at college. At this point I began to develop an interest in
Graffiti art, which had a large impact on my work as I started to
use colours opposed to the black ink I previously worked
with. This was also the time when I started to work
on canvas. I completed the two year course in the summer of 1999
and then went directly to university. In 2001 at the age of 21 I
graduated from the university of Wales with a Bachelors Degree in
Fine Art specialising in sculpture.
