When I was 4 I watched the Lion King video tape so many times until it actually broke. Obviously at that age I couldn’t articulate a rational reason for this obsession, but 22 years later (and still just as obsessed with that film) I can say that I am drawn to the way it both encapsulates the beauty and infinite wonder of creation, but also speaks such an intensely moving and raw story of life - all the while being accessible to all ages.

 

After having my own experiences of heartbreak, finding deeper truth in my faith and growing a deeper appreciation for the beauty around me, I found art was a way I could explore the world and express my experiences. Like the Lion King, I hope my work can capture beauty, truth and life in a way that connects with people.

 

I communicate my ideas through oil paintings and I use the classical techniques I learned during my time studying the Old Masters in Florence to help me to create each piece. Currently I am based in Oxford and I have a gallery and studio there called ‘Jungle’, which I co-run with a local charity to run events and workshops for the surrounding community.

 

Right now I am illustrating a book on the Psalms which is a follow up from the book ‘Unveiled’ written by my mother Clare Hayns.

 

If you have any questions, are interested in a commission or to own one of my originals, please don’t hesitate to contact me - I would love to start a conversation with you.
