The Artist

I am a fine artist who creates work that attempts to exemplify the relation between the human soul and what is True, Good, and Beautiful by personifying various concepts of Christianity into visual illustrations. 

I was born on the Isle of Wight and grew up in South East England, and have had such an interest and inclination towards art for as long as I can remember- being creative not only in constantly drawing whatever was in front of me, but also in crafting, making handmade cards, and writing my own children stories.

I moved to the United States at the age of 10, and my love of creating art continued to grow exceedingly; eventually to realize that I could not imagine myself doing anything other than art in the future.

Alongside my growth in art, I was also learning and understanding more about the Catholic faith I was brought up in. Throughout the years, I began to fall in love with the richness of the Faith and how much freedom, peace, and joy it brought me in my own life. As I began pursuing art, I desired to bring my art and Catholic faith together in a way I had not seen elsewhere, and so be able to present Christianity through a new perspective. 

In addition to painting and drawing, I also love hand lettering, cardmaking, and all sorts of other crafts. I also enjoy playing piano, ice skating, and creating travel video diaries.

But above all, I love deepening my knowledge of the Catholic faith- not only for my own sake, but so that I can better illustrate the beauty and wholeness of Christianity in my art. In this way, I become more capable of translating the invisible and conceptual into a conceivable reality, in ways that are approachable, unprecedented, and interesting.

I currently reside in Scottsdale, Arizona and am completing my Bachelor degrees in Fine Arts and Theology.

Please take some time to look at and read about my art, and feel free to contact me regarding commissions, purchasing artwork, or any other questions or comments- I would be more than happy to hear from you!
