My MS Paint drawings are mostly about daydreams, nightmares- whatever I’ve been thinking about. I put a lot of focus on colour. I think it would be really cool to be able to project your own emotions onto a stranger just through colours and shapes, so I’m trying to do that. I try to make art that is pretty but gives you the sense that something isn’t quite right.

Life is scary. Creating stuff and putting yourself out there is scary. Everyone’s worried that their work isn’t good enough and the majority of creatives even at the highest levels are highly critical of their work. The thing is; you have to put it out there. If you create work it will lead to more work. If you create work that kinda sucks then it will be better the next time you do it.

I think fundamentally the reason why we’re all scared to step out is because it is scary. To pursue something you actually love and are passionate about is sadly not the main stream today and so to take that risk is already scary in itself. But it’s also scary because as creatives we’re literally putting ourselves out there. See for me, I see my work in a really personal way, as an extension of myself.
