Bright colors, bold lines and degraded texture are key elements in my graphic art, influenced by the cut and paste DIY aesthetic of early punk/post punk culture. My work blurs the line between collage, graphic design and illustration. From music packaging to magazine covers and poster art, I am always looking for my next creative collaboration.
My Photographic work tends to hold an editorial stance and focuses on the people and relationships born through underground music culture. The images I produce are highly influenced by my involvement in the independent music scene and deal with ideas of nostalgia, angst and fleeting youth. Perspectives are very important to my work, at all times I am attempting to achieve transparency in order to create a strong legitimacy and honesty to my images.
If you would like to get together and talk about your next graphic design or photographic project please don't hesitate to contact me. I am also available for event and live photography gigs or consultation.
