“Being a Swarovski Brand Partner, Swarovski provide authentication to verify each crystal used as the real deal.”

Q1. How would you describe your work and process?

I describe my work as bespoke. The process from start to finish is very hands on, I manipulate an image and create sections of what I believe will work. I then draw the manipulated image freehand onto the Molton cloth I work with. Once satisfied with the drawing I start crystallizing the piece and bring it to life and fixating each crystal with heat.

Q2. Where do you create all/most of your work?

All artwork is created at the San B Studio.

Q3. Tell us about the pieces you have on show at The Old Bank Gallery...

I have four pieces on show at the Gallery; The Queen 90th, David Bowie, Stormtrooper and Darth Vader.

I like to focus on iconic and timeless figures and felt having these four pieces show a wide variety of what I can produce giving the audience an idea of this. You will also notice a Swarovski Hologram sticker on each piece. Being a Swarovski Brand Partner, Swarovski provide authentication to verify each crystal used as the real deal. The Swarovski Hologram contains a 16 alphanumeric code which you log onto Swarovski’s website to verify this code.

Q4. What do you enjoy most about working with The Old Bank?

It’s a friendly team with a keen interest in the Artist and their work.

Q5. Do you have plans for a new project/body of work?

Currently working on a few new projects, watch this space all will be revealed soon...
