When did you start drawing and designing and what pushed you towards it?
I’ve always been drawing from a young age. My earlier drawings were very detail orientated and
predominately anatomical, my style and interests shifted more towards design subject matter as
my personal interest and understanding of architecture formed.


How do you find the balance between the vision you have and the mediums you are using?
My vision of this realm between the fictive and the real, in which my drawings inhabit are very
much a product of different influences, references and ideas. My process and chosen mediums of
making are reflective of this multifaceted approach, bouncing between digital, traditional and
printed media.

What inspired your style of work? Where do you get inspiration from? Are there any particular
artists, photographers, painters, drawers, interior designers, architects you look up to their
works?

I’m largely inspired by my surroundings and details in the built environment. In terms of artists,
the works of Giorgiode Chirico and his distortion of perspective resonate strongly with my work.
The playfulness in the sculpture and design created by the Memphis group and the colour
palettes of the Bauhaus are also key references in my drawings. Whist I take much inspiration
from painters, designers and artists, the majority of influence comes from physical space and
buildings; the architecture of Luis Barragán, Ricardo Bofill, Carlo Scarpa, Linda Bo Bardi and
Richard England and a few of my most admired architects.

What is the process behind the creation of a piece if there is one?
My process is a merging of different mediums and means of documentation; though photography,
research and sketching the spatial compositions are then constructed by playing with such
documentation, contorting it through 3D modeling and digital drawing.


Would you say that there is a main thread connecting all your artworks and if so, which is it?
Architectural space is always the focal point for my artwork, whether it is physical space as
sculptural installation or rendered imagined places pertaining to interiors. Particular architectural
details such as the staircase and archway are very prevalent in my drawings as they’re elements
I find particularly curious in the built environment and domestic settings.

What kind of talks would you like to hear around your artworks?
I would like to hear discussion around of the intersection of art and design and how the practices
are inhabit one another.
