Personal Statement

I want to make the world seem strange again, to de-familiarize it so it can be re-seen with fresh, curious eyes. My paintings, drawings and sculptures look at animals and how we manipulate their natures and behaviours, especially through childrens entertainment. These anthropomorphisms become a tool to blur the visual and emotional boundaries between humans and animals, adulthood and childhood, examining the wonder and fun of nonsense. I graduated from the University of Brighton with a Fine Art Painting degree in 2013 and have been a practicing Artist in the South ever since. In 2015, I won the South of England Award in the National Open Arts competition.
