My creative journey so far has been one full of accomplishments that I am proud of. From having my artwork displayed in a gallery, to winning awards, my artwork has always spoken about what is on my mind and takes people on a journey of their own.
Even though I am an artist that creates surreal and abstract worlds that bring my imagination to life in new and creative ways, there was a time when I had no creativity and was even fearful of my own shadow.
My artistic pursuits started at a young age when dreaming of creating worlds and realities of my own.
When I discovered digital art I was given the tools to turn my childhood dreams into a reality, but all that ended when I turned to drugs at the age of 16, which inevitably spiraled me down the wrong path.
In my darkest hour I was lost and was diagnosed with schizophrenia at 18. Terribly frighted of the world, it wasn’t until my Uncle gave me a job at his glass studio that I found a slither of hope. I became an assistant glass blower learning a 2000 year old craft and finally found myself developing my passion for art again.
Feeling the need to fill my excitement, I decided to return to my fascination of creating digital art, learning the ropes on Photoshop, 3Ds Max and Bryce to express my creativity and find peace in my world.
I’ve learnt many lessons on my journey in life, I want to cultivate a positive change in the way others and myself perceive the world through art.
I believe each of my creations is a hyper reality, a surreal place to lose myself.
I hope my art inspires others when they too are going through dark times and need more color in their life.
