I love detail and vivid, bright colours! As an artist and illustrator, the areas where I find inspiration and beauty are in urban environments and the cultures that live within this. With both these areas is the idea of looking a little deeper and getting absorbed into the image. I tend to work in a series when creating personal work, it maybe a series of cityscapes or close up portraits.
My process consists of drawing the initial outline and then digitally colouring the image. For colour I start with flat colours, then focus on shading and detail.
My artwork comes from a personal place of expression, as a child I grew up with my brother who has autism and drawing was our way of communicating. I believe at the core of what I create is the view to communicate, opening up a conversation and this is the main reasons why I love illustration. I enjoy art that is accessible for everybody and always as a positive way of expressing yourself!
