I recently started creating visual art to express the beauty of existence as I see it each day. As I can imagine many of you will relate, my life has been full of extreme positives and negatives and leads me to question the reason I exist. I find great interest in many philosophies on existence, particularly 'existentialism'. This has shaped my views on life and what I consider to be a 'purpose in life'. It's different for everyone, but for me, it's to provide happiness for others from what I do. 

After teaching myself to draw and paint in my spare time, I started using charcoal to create body shapes. This cold and dark substance reminds me of the possibilities in creating beauty and a representation of life from death (dead tree matter). I now use charcoal in every art piece as a realistic representation of life. I recently started using acrylic colours as a way to express the beauty of movement and emotion. Almost to express visually how it feels to be alive and full of energetic emotion. For now, I create expressionism/realism/street art style pieces , using my own unique made up techniques and styles. Being a self taught artist, I'm always off on my own little winding and twisting dirt track as I seek to discover more ways to express life as I see it. 

Education
Self Taught Artist. 
After attending seven schools, I dropped out. Though, somehow I have a few unrelated certificates and a bachelors degree. 
Before becoming a full-time artist in 2017, I worked in 30 different fields, jumping from job to job. I get bored easily.  
I've worked as a media teacher, investigation officer, Google Maps tech, cabinet maker, apprentice chef, training hairdresser, toilet cleaner and musician to name a few.
