I would describe myself as a self-motivated and passionate individual. My strengths are organisational skills, creativity and determination. I fight to achieve all my goals in life to the best standard and hope to achieve a highly successful career. I am a perfectionist who applies one hundred percent to everything I endeavour.
I am a British Artist who graduated from Salford University in 2012, born and still living in Stockport. I was fortunate enough to study in Porto, Portugal as part of the Erasmus exchange programme for 6 months in 2011 to expand my skills at Universidade do Porto. Whilst studying in my first year I grew an interest in the nude figure and have since continue my fascination for the female form. My usual practice is painting but I have recently found an interest in body performance and print making.
