Born in Hong Kong, raised in Spain and the UK, I became a fanatic of art at the age of nine when I was first introduced to architectural art through the medium of watercolour and sculpture.

Having lived through various cultural changes and adapted to each of their settings, I have gained my own personal understanding and style to reflect this in my work through subjects such as flora and fauna, landscapes, portraits & architecture. I am also influenced by many artists who place a strong emphasis on surrealism - namely Lebbeus Woods, Banksy, Zaha Hadid, Gustav Klimt, Salvador Dali, Damian Ortega and Hokusai - and have turned to their work for artistic stimulation over the years.

The aim in my work is to transform something mundane or common to the human eye into a powerful piece by balancing two contrasting themes - realism and conceptual art. I particularly enjoy combining loose watercolour paint with intricate pen designs in order to create a sense of freedom whilst still maintaining certain elements of delicacy and sophistication.
