  Back to profiles

I am an emerging interdisciplinary artist and student based in Leeds, England. Between the years of 2015 and 2018, I have exhibited as part of various group, solo and community exhibitions across the UK and in Catalonia and Greece. I was a featured artist in the May and June 2017 editions of the Average Arts magazine, and was shortlisted for the CROOME Development and research award in 2018.

I am a spontaneous artist who enjoys to explore, experiment and create art work from various art forms, including but not limited to; painting, sculpture, installation, photography, ceramics and printmaking.

Previous art projects as part of my artistic practice have been based on colour, biomorphism, audience interaction, fluctuation and working within the expanded field of painting.

I believe it is important to be original, individual and independent, as an artist, and to create and produce new art work that pushes against the boundaries of the art world, and what can be considered as a piece of art.

I enjoy working, communicating and exhibiting with, and alongside other artists, curators, and galleries, where I am able to share my ideas and my art work to help myself to continue to evolve as an artist.

This is not the end, this is only the beginning.
