As an artist I have really come to love working with pebeo mix media products. I have always been quite controlling with my art work and I have found these paints allow me to experiment freely. It is a fascinating process, as the outcome cannot always be predicted, as the paint takes on a life of its own. The interactions between the different types of paints such as fantasy prisme and moon creates truly unique designs. The Swirling colours and effects are beautiful and create the perfect surface for my silhouette drawings, which are drawn using 4Artist markers.

This piece consists of 27 suspended records, each one representing a member of the 27 club, a group of talented musicians that all died at the age of 27. In some scenes, it is a dedication to the Beautiful Disasters, The young idols and the self destructive paths that lead to their deaths.
‘Protect the Protectors’ consists of three large scale banners which explores issues regarding extreme policing against peaceful protesters at a long term protest camp, against fracking based in Barton Moss. However, the main focus of the work was not about the issues of Fracking itself. The work is presented in a way which offers solidarity and support to the eco warriors carrying out the protest, as they struggled against Greater Manchester Police and there inappropriate policing methods which severely questions, both there police oath and the Human Rights act of 1998.

My current work targets the so called ‘rebel youth’, In relation to the Mods and Rockers phenomenon that hit Britain’s beaches during the Bank holidays of 1964/65. The work focuses on the media’s attention that exaggerated the happenings that took place and also questions the Polices authority and their ability (or lack of) to regain social control.
