As a fine artist, I work in many mediums including printmaking, drawing, painting, photography and film. My art practice has always revolved around feminine issues, body modification, and general human behavior.  Having many tattoos and piercings myself, as well as working in a tattoo studio, I have always been fascinated not only in the science of body manipulation but the many reasons for which people decide to change their bodies. The past year I have furthered my investigation into how Modern Western Society often clouds our vision as to what issues are really important and causes us to hold irrational priorities. These irrationalities cover both small topics like body modification with health risks to larger issues such as world politics and war.

I started my tattoo career  apprenticing in InkDivdual Tatto Studio in Aberdeen back in July 2014.  Now as a full-time licensed tattoo artist, I am specializing in custom designs, holding a particular interest in mandala and watercolour tattoos.  Designs and completed tattoos can be seen in the gallery and all queries can be addressed via email or within the studio.
