I was born October 1995, Cardiff. I have studied at the University of South Wales in Trefforest under Fine Art and later Cardiff metropolitan university in Landaff, also under Fine Art.
I make art because of the way it makes me feel. My process allows me to self-imbue my art by pouring my sentiment directly into them. If a piece doesn’t feel right it isn’t started. My art is like a souvenir to help reflect upon stages in my life. The artwork is equally as important as my physical presence.
The work that I make come from personal experiences. Some, from the past have come from a confrontation of mortality, another experiencing a human error and my hesitation to repeat it. Another one; spending of time with a unspoken tension. They derive from very specific events. The ideas are then refined down to the most important features and are manifested into an image and accompanying text in order to give suggestion.
I find interest in artists such as Carman Herrera, Mark Rothko, Garry Hume and Billy Al Bengston. This is evident in materials, style, compositions and awareness of features of work.
In the past I have worked on a traditional canvas and wooden stretcher, while this felt very comfortable I had made the decision to shift to metal support. The transition helped support my current intentions to form a clean cut and contemporary style all with a newly found level of control over the material.
I hope to lure the viewer in with attractive visuals. Once captured, with the use of thought provoking titling, which invite the viewers own associations and preconceptions.
The works I have chosen to display have been selected to draw a close to my educational BA practice.
