Profile


I’m fascinated by facial expressions and human behaviour in first world societies – typically, complaining. I strive to produce art that reveals the raw emotions that linger under all our skins. My practice, consisting of painting, drawing and animation of extreme facial expressions and slapstick humour, endeavours to bring to light the anxiety and unnecessary pressure inflicted upon ourselves by petty, pointless arguments that we all experience at some point in our busy lives. Heavily Miller, I reveal truths about our behaviours through the lens of slapstick humour by depicting extremely exaggerated expressions that satirise how some of us cry over spilt milk in our sheltered and comfortable lives.
