About me

After years of self-exploration, I feel like I have finally arrived at my own, personal voice. I draw from always being on the cusp of new technology, alternating between the digital and the analogue. At present, I’m inclined towards crafts and the handmade; loosely referencing the amazing, yet humble, skills of my family. I’m drawn to the tangible nature of handicrafts whilst the world is fighting an “invisible” enemy.

I’m preferring to use palettes full of colour, reacting against the recent, local trend of homogenous, grey houses. These colours reflect upon the optimism of my childhood in the 1980s and 90s; the bold works of creatives like Ken Done and Jenny Kee; the hyperactive colouring of the time’s pop culture.
