I’m an artist that is very interested in exploring how public art, interactive art and social media intersect.

My murals specifically invite people into a piece and then invite people to share their experience online. I believe that art should not be separated from the human experience. Instead the human experience should have a hand in creating the art itself.

After studying art in Florence, and graduating from Richmond University in London with a degree in Art, Design & Media, I spent 4 years in NYC – embracing and battling the Big Apple while developing my pen & ink style.

People have asked me where the designs come from in my illustrations. I could give some long, mystical answer, but the truth is… I honestly don’t know. I just know that when I start drawing, I completely lose myself in the flow of images. I hope you enjoy these designs as much as I enjoyed creating them!
