  Back to profiles

I am a Leeds based artist, interested in the human psyche.

My practise explores this through expressionist drawing, graphite, biro pens, posca pens and felt tip pens. I use distortion, abstration and subtraction to create portraits of different emotional states. I depict the raw intensity of distress, anxiety, dissociation and depersonalization in my work.
