I am currently undertaking a degree in Fine Art at the Ulster University, Belfast. I create artworks through an expansive range of media such as painting, drawing, digital, mixed media and, most recently, photography. In my artwork, I use strong visual effects and dramatic lighting to attract the viewer’s attention. Within the aesthetics, I like to convey activities, tell stories, ask questions and express ideas within the work.
My influences range from the theatrical depictions of the physical and emotional human state in Caravaggio’s paintings and the surreal dreamlike settings conjured up by Salvador Dali, to highly acclaimed photographers of this era such as Gregory Crewdson, known for his elaborately stage scenes of American neighbourhoods, and David LaChapelle, famous for his hyper-realistic photographs with strong social messages. Though, my greatest inspiration is everything I see, feel and experience throughout my life.
