A little bit about me
I am an artist and teacher from Wales. Currently living in China. Before moving to China, I spent two years living, working and making artwork in the Middle East. In 2015, I completed my undergraduate degree in Fine-Art and the following year I completed a post-graduate degree in teaching Secondary Art & Design. After graduating from Cardiff Metropolitan University I was considered a specialist in painting and printing, although ironically my final exhibition was based around performance and photography. I enjoy experimenting with different mediums and techniques, which is what lead me to create the style of work I do today.
Printful is a manufacturer who prints, packages and delivers my t-shirts and poster prints to you. Printful has manufacturing facilities in the USA, Spain, Latvia and Australia. Therefore, where you are ordering from is which facility will be fulfilling your order.
My illustrations and designs are created digitally on the platform 'Procreate'. I started by using my fiancé's iPad, just drawing portraits of icons and characters. I eventually got my own iPad and started to refine my artwork. Over time I transformed these icons and characters into cartoon impressions, some with juxtaposition humour. Iconic movies, media and humour are my main forms of inspiration, but I'm always exploring different ideas. Overtime, after sharing my work on social media and to family and friends I was encouraged to take my work a step further, by selling it for others to enjoy.
