I am a digital artist exploring how notions of beauty and visual identity are expanding in the digital age.  I mix influences from past mythology & folk art, modern fashion, sci-fi and futuristic cyberpunk to create something time-agnostic and perhaps a little uncomfortable. Working in a purely digital medium allows me the freedom to explore ideas, shapes, materials and textures that aren’t constrained by the limitations of the physical world.

I am interested in how digital technologies will help shape posthuman aesthetics.  Old notions of identity bind us less when our humanity isn’t necessarily attached to traditional human form.I have been featured on Vogue Italy as a leading artist reinventing views around beauty, technology and identity.  I am also the 2020 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize, winner for Digital Art.

'The Carnaval That Wasn't' - In 2021 the Brazilian government made a difficult decision to postpone the centuries-old tradition due to the pandemic. This was the second time that Carnaval was postponed since the first parade in 1723.

This series celebrates the parallel Carnaval that takes place in the poorer suburbs of Rio de Janeiro. Far from the glamorous beaches, the Sambadrome, and the crowd of tourists that descend on the city for the world famous parades, there is an explosive contest between suburban neighbourhoods.

This old form of carnival features teams of masked clowns that are a surreal mixture of delight and terror. A tradition that has its roots in ancient European carnival traditions and in African rituals, they look like visitors from another world. The bate-bola series was featured on VOGUE ITALIA as part of an editorial on leading artists working at the intersection of Art, Beauty and Technology.
