Alongside art, my other passion is kickboxing and martial arts and I’m convinced this has given me the confidence to take the plunge with my painting.
I think it also goes some way to explain why I’m so preoccupied with movement in my work. I want my subjects to have a punch, a whoosh moment, a sense of being alive.
It has helped me realise I should be brave, not let fear hold me back, to have faith in myself and to fight to make my dreams a reality.
And so I found myself showing at my debut exhibition in June 2019 with no other relevant qualification than the art with art history A-level I achieved at school.
I’m on an art adventure, I’m loving the ride and I'm doing it my way.
