Describe your practice/style?

My work is generally split between pen and ink work and collage. The collaged aspects of my work are generally contained in moleskine notebooks. I draw in sketchbooks constantly and collate those drawings into something more aesthetically pleasing. I gravitate towards black and white work but I’m slowly trying to introduce colour into my practice. My subject matter tends to be quite eclectic, currently favouring floating hands and floating heads.  

What Inspires you?

I’m interested in the macabre, the weird and the wonderful. I spend far too much money on art books, comic books and records. Keeping a busy yet organised workspace seems to work best for maintaining creativity. My favourite film is Taxidermia, Directed by György Pálfi and is literally everything I want my work to express. In terms of other artists I’m always inspired by the work of James Jean, Joao Ruas and Nimit Malavia.

I’ve been lucky enough to meet some talented people in the past few years and I don’t think anything is quite as motivating as being surrounded by great people doing great things.

What direction do you wish to take your work/career?

I want to get into drawing record covers and band merch but aside from that I’m open to any opportunities I’m given.
