Animal in You


Animal in You is a series of oil paintings and photo collage prints inspired by inkblots and what myself and others saw in them. Take a dive into the subconscious mind and discover a delightfully surreal menagerie of magical creatures and forms

Tell me what you see and I’ll bring your vision to life- a true collaboration between artist and viewer. Inspired by psychoanalysis, animal archetypes and the subjective experience.

Animal in Me

A series based on my own interpretation of inkblots, inspired by subconscious imagery, animal archetypes, symbology and mythology.
