My work uses mixed media and drawing as the main processes. I have also created work in video and multi media. The subjects I deal with are typically to do with popular culture and growing up. My work concentrates on the emulation of icons and obsessions, feelings of isolation and trying to fit in. I Particularly use pop music and the images, which accompany this. As an artist I am interested in the emulation involved in the search for an identity of one’s own and the inherent security of finding an idol to latch onto. For my current work I am creating paintings using nail varnish and nail technician tools on mirrors.
