I have been tackling the subject of urban life since graduating in1999 from Gray’s School in 1999 with a BA (Hons) in Painting, going on to receive a Postgraduate Diploma/Masters in Art & Design in 2000.

In 2013 I turned my attention to images inspired by my many trips to Amsterdam and the whole visual urban experience. In 2015 my work was featured at Het Kunstenaarsbal (Amsterdam Cultural Festival).

I have exhibited widely in the UK as well as all over Europe and North America.

Moving from painting large scale street art inspired canvases to walls my Tribe All Spraycan artwork began in 2019 as an idea for a workshop painting on old spray cans which would have otherwise been thrown away.

In 2019 these paintings developed into my unisex urban t-shirt brand Tribe All. Both the artwork and the t-shirts celebrate and promoting the diverse cultures of the world motivated by my love of street art and culture. Tribe All represents a sense of togetherness – together we are one!
My artwork has been featured in Elle Decoration, 3 editions of House & Garden and Red magazine. GQ, Wired, London Life, Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, Elle, Cosmopolitan and Vogue have all run editorial on Tribe All. The brand has also been promoted at the Urban Music Awards in 2020 and 2022. The first ever National Social Media Awards in 2021 in London and at Event Savo’ opening Milan Fashion Week in September 2022 where Tribe All was paraded as ‘New Talent’.

My work draws inspiration from the urban environments and street art of European cities. My spray can painting series incorporates the vibrant palette and compositional elements of graffiti with the traditional aesthetic of tribal masks. With this, I wish to celebrate the wonderful diversity there is in this world, while promoting a sense of togetherness. Despite our many differences, we are all one beautiful tribe.
