“Normality is a paved road: it’s comfortable to walk on, but no flowers grow on it.”

– Vincent Van Gogh

My university experience has allowed me to grow and flourish in many ways both personally and academically. If I had to describe my artistic style in three words, it would be simplistic, experimental and symbolic. I primarily use black and grey tones, but also enjoy using a positive limited colour palette when appropriate.

Throughout my university experience I have experimented with a range of different techniques to find that one of my favourite mediums to work in is ink. One of my passions is to create artwork that is connected to issues like mental health and self-care. University has been full of many great and exciting opportunities. My favourite accomplishments have been when my artwork was shown in Boston Tea Party as part of an exhibition at the end of second year and also when my artwork was shown in an exhibition called ‘Posters on Politics’ in Baltimore Gallery in Detroit.
