Tell us a little bit about your work.
For me the work is an ongoing investigation into the notion of the contemporary grotesque.
How do you go about creating a piece?
I use random techniques to get started be it a manipulated photograph, blind drawings or crumpling up the paper this creates a platform to begin dialog with the work, from there I tend to work quite instinctually in pencil allowing the drawing to evolve before pining it down with ink and water colours.
Comes from everywhere, but if you're talking artists then here is a list of people I look to - Brueghel, Goya, William Hogarth, James Gillray, James Ensor, Paul Klee, Philip Guston, Robert Crumb, the Chapman brothers, David Shrigley, Marc Bell, Seth Scriver, Inka Essenhigh.
This is it.
