My work and higher education background is in Graphic Design. I obtained a BTEC in Media and Graphic design at RACC in Richmond, London. I went on to study Graphic Design at Middlesex University in North London and Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia.
In 2009 I completed a Graphic Design and Social Media internship at Fabric nightclub in London.
From 2010-2014 I worked as the sole Graphic Designer and Social Media manager for The Peterborough Panthers; a British Elite League Speedway team.
In 2014 I took a break from work and studying to travel and live abroad. Tattooing found me while I was living in Guatemala, in the magical lakeside town of San Pedro. Here I was offered a tattoo apprenticeship by the owner of Smoking Papayas Ink. I began learning alongside some amazing local and international artists. Smoking Papayas Ink
has been home to an incredible amount of talent from all over the world, with artists currently working in England, Ireland, Germany, France & Spain.
In 2015 I returned to England and secured an apprenticeship with London Ink and Channel 4’s Dan Gold, at his studio Monsters of Art in North London. In 2016, after a year in London with Dan, I established my own studio in my hometown of Ascot, Berkshire.
I specialise in custom blackwork, dotwork and geometric designs. I find great inspiration in sacred geometry, pattern, mandalas, and the natural world around me. The art and artists I have been fortunate to experience during my extensive travels have also been an influence on my own art.
