While living at home in Wotton-Under-Edge, Gloucestershire, I studied at the nearby Stroud College, renowned for its excellence in Art & Design, where I completed a Foundation Degree covering Photography and Illustration. After moving to Brighton, encouraged by the artistic influences there, in Autumn 2016 I decided to pursue my art full time. Alongside my more formal art, I also set up Bear Clause Designs as a vehicle for promoting my abstract work when applied to Gifts and Accessories. All my work is created digitally as a mosaic of triangles, each and every one painstakingly placed and meticulously coloured individually. Using computer software as a canvas gives me the freedom manually to stretch and resize each triangle to the exact shape I want, and to select a precise colour.
