My art mainly consists of graphite drawings, and oil and acrylic paintings, using these mediums I explore current events, politics, equality and disability. This allows me to address current events in a visual way that sparks interest in the topic that delivers an alternative narrative.

 

Being diagnosed with a physical disability as an infant, I see the world from an alternative viewing angle compared to the able-bodied. This affects everything from my interactions with others to navigating through education and employment over the years. Most of the new works that I've created fall under the heading  I call "Equality Art". The art style allows me to narrate my experiences, fears and views on past and current events from a disabled person's point of view.

 

Over the last few years, I have introduced new mediums to help me expand my skill set and grow as an artist, these mediums have allowed me to explore creating short films, sculptures digital works and oil paintings.
