My work predominantly revolves around human anatomy and physiology, exploring the external beauty of the human body while exposing it’s equally beautiful functioning mechanisms lurking under the surface. Being fascinated by cosmetic surgery, I also explore the ways in which the human form can be manipulated on the surface and what the pursuit of human beauty in our society can mean. Working in pencil, charcoal, ink, and water-colour as my primary media (although exploring many more), each piece is hand drawn/painted, making each distinctive and one-of-a-kind, just like the human subjects I capture.
