As an artist my background is painting. Mostly realist / surrealist works, although i have a teachers certificate in ceramics, which i rarely use these days.

I spent time as a resident artist in gallery’s in Europe and New Zealand and painted from canvas to auto bodies, mostly commission based painting these days with a few hanging in studios.

I was a tattoo apprentice under Shaun Butling in 2010 to 2012 and was immediately hooked!

I’ve been working on crossing over between painting and tattooing, enjoying some of the more graphic imagery too. I’m leaning toward the more textural elements in tattoo at the moment such as bio/mechanical works but i am always open to taking on custom works, in fact its all good to me!

I take inspiration from everyone and everything, all ups and downs. I’m just happy to be creating and sharing the moment! So bring it on!
