My work is inspired by an interest in music, which is explored through digital painting. The limitations of traditional painting lead to this choice of media, which offered an expanded range of possibilities and processes.

The formal properties of large-scale digital prints presented a different way to approach painting, not only through the perfect, bold, solid colour that traditional painting cannot achieve, but also, in a digital age, through being closer in essence to contemporary music. The role of masculine stereotypes within urban music is a key interest, with reference to magazines and internet culture.
