My work is very obviously inspired by Japanese anime; specifically that of brightly-coloured girls with big eyes.

The main focus of my work is for it to exude feelings of happiness or joy. Nostalgia, or childhood memories, are usually that of carefree naivety which is an important feeling that I have always been interested in recreating. I am very in tune with the idea of having the viewer of my work feel safe and happy, and not left with the sense of any ill feelings.
