As an Artist I am consistently challenging conventional notions and forms of what Art is and what what makes an image interesting and or how it influences emotions or captures the person or place in an unusual way. It has always fascinated me how an Art can affect both moods and initiate deep thoughts as per the old saying “A picture paints a 1000 words” .
I enjoy adding my own personal flavour by changing the conforming lines of thinking whenever I can, whether it be portraiture, abstract, surrealist, pop or any other image I am working on. This can be seen throughout many of creative works as an Artist today and in my career as a Graphic Designer.
My interest in people and the ordinary and extraordinary manifest in my creativity a-lot, utilising both light and dark through hours of practice, mistakes and irreverent ideas based on perceptions on what I perceive a character or place denotes to me, helps me put together unique conversational pieces that anyone can enjoy. The smallest of ideas can develop into a truly unique inspiration and one idea usually lends itself to another allowing me to develop an ongoing creative cycle that is at the heart of my creative being.
I continuously developing creativity and artistry as an on-gong process daily. I have been painting and drawing since I could hold a pencil. I Learn my craft constantly studying and exploring the styles and techniques of the "masters" that I admire – from Basquiat, Warhol, Dali , Haring ,Klint, Kline, Twombly and Picasso to name but a few.
