In 2008 Lain graduated from Swindon College with a degree in HND Illustration.
My work can be described as surreal and unique in its own way. Using mostly pencil, watercolours and pigment pens, I create portraits of ordinary people but create them in a unusual way by, embellishing patterns and watercolour effects into the portrait to give a vivid explosion effect transforming their faces from something plain to something entirely bizarre and wonderful at the same time.
