My dance background
Started as a freestyle dancer when I was 16 with popping and breakin. After making it to the semi finals on Sky 1s Got to Dance, I went on to perform for a variety of companies in multiple settings, such as; Peugeot UK tour, Argos Christmas advert, Olivier Awards, European Games Closing Ceremony and many more.
In the last 3 years I've moved into theatre applying the technique of the street dance styles I've learned to exploring movement. In that time I have performed at; The Place London, Breakin Convention (North Carolina, Luxembourg & London) as well as their 15th anniversary.
My Art background
Over 12 years experience in Illustration and design which began studying ‘Fine Art & Illustration’ in college and graduating from Hatfield University with a degree in Illustration.
I am commissioned for a wide variety of projects; from branding packages to character design to murals. I currently spend most of my time painting with my preference being portraits and animals.
First is a strong foundation of tools: technique, speed and an understanding of the medium.
After that, the aim for me is to capture what’s important; about the subject, to the client and to me.
When creating a piece of work my aim is to show a different perspective, how I see things. To get you to be present with the work and question how you feel/think about it at the time.
This normally gets me in conversation with people where I get to hear how they perceived the piece or how they would've approached it.
