I have always had a passion for art, and from a young age imagined I would be a cartoonist. In fact I saved my pocket money for over a year to buy a 'How to Draw book' when I was 8. My family originate from the beautiful island of Mauritius, but I was born and bred in Haywards Heath, England. This unique blend of cultures has informed my upbringing and inspired my art.
I have drawn and painted all of my life, despite not making it as a cartoonist! Throughout my studies I have had a constant interest in conceptual art and strive to deliver meaning and depth in the work that I do.
I went on to study photography at college and set design for film in University. Here I learnt how to expand and develop my art whilst working in the art department for both TV and film. Through an internship at the National Gallery, London, I learnt to appreciate art history and the wealth of meaning and symbolism that can be found.
I travelled the world, became a teacher and in the process learnt much about myself. I try to express this self exploration, emotion and humanity in my work. For me, art is both a release and a product which I am grateful to share.
