STYLE: Oil Painterly Realism
I feel that my style is best described as "oil painterly" I don't feel that my tattoos look "realistic" I strive more for a classical or vintage oil painting feel.
I kind of fell into tattooing just over 4 years ago when I offered to help a studio owner fix up their marine fish tank, I was really into art and at the time working in an aquarium so we traded tips and two weeks later they had me tattooing, that was unexpectedly fast. Haha, and NO I would not recommend anyone ever do that, it was brutal.
From there through a weird turn of events I ended up falling into owning my own shop in Canada about 6 months later and was basically self taught the whole way.
I'm now living back in Australia and working with Khan at his private studio in Brisbane, as well as regular guest spots at Skin Deep Tattoo Gallery in Melbourne. I also attend as many conventions as I can along the way.
I am a traveler, animal loving vegetarian and avid sea shepherd supporter. I feel like this part of me heavily influences my art style as I focus almost exclusively on nature subjects such as wildlife and flowers.
