To paint a small picture about myself…
I love creativity and storytelling, and expressing my views, worries and hopes through the medium of art. And I have made it my mission to do so. Raised in a creative environment, I adopted a love for art early on, studying it religiously ever since and have come to believe that it is indeed the pencil that is mightier than the sword.
I use narrative, figurative painting, with elements of allegory and symbolism, as a form of socio-political commentary. Following in the figurative tradition, I aim to invite debate about the politics of the recent past and present and expose things that are often ignored or seemingly overlooked. Painting and drawing are essential to my practice and I seek inspiration from the widest range of sources possible.
I have achieved first-class honours in Fine Art at Loughborough University.
