I formerly explored my creative talents in the fields of pop culture and street art as part of Tortoy producing toy designs and illustration works featured internationally, including Comic-Con(USA), IDN (Hong Kong) and Shift (Japan) magazines. During the last decade, my interest in anthropomorphic portraiture grew and I shifted swiftly into drawing and painting. Training at the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts under the tutelage of Dr. David Cranswick led to my current practice mixing contemporary imagery with ancient processes, and in 2011 I was awarded an MA degree in Fine Arts with distinction from the City and Guilds of London Art School. Based in London, I have been showing regularly in the UK and Europe and was selected for the 2011 New English Art Club Annual Exhibition and shortlisted for the BP Portrait Exhibition in 2012.
