I grew up in London wanting to be a music producer. I left school wanting to be a mechanical engineer. I went to university to study advertising. Now I work as an advertising creative in a London agency.

2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I like to take things from real life and tweak them so that they become something completely different.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

Photoshop; It’s quick and offers endless possibilities.

4. What is your artistic process like?

I brainstorm ideas and try and reflect on what interest’s me at that moment. Then I challenge myself to create something that I think looks cool.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

Literally anyone and anything. Also hands… not sure why.

6. What role does art play in your life? How does it change the way you view the world?

I mostly do art for myself. Working in advertising means you don’t always get to create exactly what you want, so drawing is a way for me to be creative with no restraints

A creative director at an agency living in an interesting country and hopefully I own a Doberman.

A better understanding of colour and composition that I can take forward into advertising and film.
