Whilst studying a degree in biology and anthropology I became interested in contemporary body art and, after graduating, learnt to do piercing.
During this time I was encouraged to get involved in tattooing and started on an ongoing journey of self taught artistic learning.
I have always had a fascination with the art of traditional cultures, especially in relation to body art, and how they can be translated and reimagined in a modern, western aesthetic.
I have lately started experimenting with various techniques such as pyrography and carving on linoleum and wood.
I find that these techniques translate well from my tattooing experience and allow me to explore other artistic avenues whilst remaining very tactile.
