A Brighton based artist trying to paint things that elicit an emotional response within myself and perchance in you, something that contains a little of my soul to put out into the world to live its own life.
I’m passionately averse to creating any of the decorative art that is so prevalent on SaatchiArt's endless pages.
I want to push against the prejudices and boundaries of 'normalcy', to touch on the taboo, try and understand myself and the human condition a little. Therefore my subjects are certainly not to everyone’s tastes, it's usually LOVE or HATE, I welcome both.
I’ve spent many, many years creating commercial marketing work for worldwide corporate clients. As my fiftieth birthday approached I suddenly had an urge to try and create some art for myself. Something I’ve barely done since classes at school. It felt like an epiphany. On my website and via SaatchiArt I’ve sold paintings and prints around the world. Won first prize at EAL2019, I’ve sold paintings to friends and colleagues and had commissions from social media and acquaintances.
It has ignited a spark in me that I’d like to feed into the flames of a passion.
I feel full of ideas that I’d like to explore and flesh out, in paint... so I’d like to thank anyone who takes an interest in my journey to do that, however small, even just reading this. Or large, buying something... Thank you 🙏🏿
