My work is inspired by addressing social issues, and matters of importance to me through creative mediums. Using but not limited to photography, styling and graphic design, I am always keen to learn new skills and continually develop through experimentation.
Creativity and craft has been celebrated in my family from a young age, as has my enthusiasm for learning, appreciating cultural diversity and embracing individuality. As I have grown older, my outlook on the world has developed through personal experiences, and compassion for the experiences of others, I have navigated my skills to communicate these interests into projects.
As a neurodiverse, mixed race individual, I have found that I have struggled with my identity and finding my place in society. Having battled with mental health, it is now my inspiration to use my multi-faceted approach to share my stories in hope to connect others and better society. I am also inspired by innovation, lights, colour, music, events, and everything weird and wonderful, and try to incorporate this into my work.
My final project was an exploration into ADHD, and the relationship between colour and mood; inspired by LED lighting, mutual experiences and understanding. It aims to visually take people on a journey to better understand ADHD in adults by using fashion video and photography. I also proposed and designed an event that would serve as both a film premiere and sensory experience for neurodivergent young adults to feel a part of something exciting as a less traditional approach to mental health awareness.
