Hi! I’m an artist from the Yorkshire Coast, England. I paint colorful, alternative portraits of iconic people. I suffer from depression aka ‘the black dog’ as it is sometimes known but I find that my art allows me to paint over the darkness.

I express myself with color as a way of managing my mental health; it’s not just a job or an interest, it’s part of my self-care routine and keeps me grounded when the dark storms in my head threatened to carry me away. I hope you guys like my work and would love to hear from others who use their creativity to combat mental health issues.
