ABOUT + contact

Hb0m8 (or H-Bomb) is me, Hayley.  Hi!

I’m a Brighton based self-taught artist that likes to make a mess!


As adults, I think it's important that we don't lose that childlike curiousness that we grew up with. Play is important, and besides, I'm happiest when I have paint in my hair! 

You’ve probably stumbled upon my website from instagram, because of my digital fanart, (hello, Earpers!) however, not wanting to restrict my creative self to one tiny box, I also very much enjoy experimenting with a variety of different mediums and techniques outside of the digital realm. (See my portfolio for examples!). 


Art is a powerful thing, and I hope to use mine to tell stories by capturing emotion and passion, through the exploration of colour and texture, both digitally and traditionally using use paint, collage and whatever else I can find.

Mixed media is my favourite, and the collision of digital and traditional is what excites me the most.

A lot of my work is heavily influenced by comic books, and my love for feminist-centric and female led TV, film and music. I’m inspired by everything. Art is everywhere!


Please feel assured that every single piece here has been created with plenty of love, care, caffeine and to an awesome playlist.


​Thank you for supporting my work -  I appreciate you!
