I create as a form of therapy, in particular the idea of collage which, for me, is all about bringing a variety of things together to make something new and to develop understanding. Whether the components are shapes, colours and textures or pitches, words and voices, I am fascinated by assembling them in different and diverse ways in order to give life to a particular landscape, vision, idea or emotion.
Born in 1989 and raised in rural Suffolk, I grew up juggling two of my first loves: music and art. At 19, I moved to Leeds, West Yorkshire to complete a music degree at Leeds College of Music, specialising in singing and composition. Now based back in Suffolk, my focus is on writing and performing music as well as creating mixed media landscape art with a combination of plein air and studio work.
