My art reflects my life experiences and the people and things most important to me. I use acrylic and oil paint on wooden board, as the smoothness of the wood allows me to create detailed and realistic portraits. I inclide items in the painting that are significant to the sitter, this helps to tell their story. 

 Recently I have been using bold colours and experimental techniques to create a trippy and intense effect that is both fun and direct, yet dream-like and psychedelic, and I like to add aura-like lines and bright intense pop art style details to the background to make the realism of the portrait stand out against the brightly coloured surrealism of the background.

My themes are predominantly centred around people and what’s most important to them.

My art is evolving over time and is becoming more expressive, I’m excited about where it is heading.
