I work in two dimensions using paint, print and collage to create radical and inspirational slogans about identity. I have also branched out into creating electronic music. I recently set up Reflex of Arts (@reflex_of_arts on Instagram), a collaboration with Pyramid and Health for All Leeds, which uses art to give care leavers like myself a voice and to build confidence through creativity.
