Hello, I am an artist from Bristol and have been drawing and painting for all of my life.
I studied Art, Design and Illustration at Brunel College of Art in Bristol after leaving school, and then had a break from visual arts and studied creative advertising and marketing at Falmouth College in Cornwall, before realising that art was my chosen career, so began to sell my work professionally from 2003 onwards.
My work is contemporary and abstract and is inspired by surroundings, moods and experiences. I am influenced by artists such as Jackson Pollock and MC Escher, as well as pop/modern art and graffiti and street art culture, and base the ideas of my artwork around anything from landscapes to science fiction or music and films or even dreams I have, plus anything I encounter in daily life inspires my work.
To produce my work I use acrylics, oils, enamel paints and spray paint, I experiment with colours and textures to produce unique abstract pieces. The finished product is highly detailed, energetic and demands a closer look and I often use inks to add intricate details to the work.
I also work on highly detailed illustrations using inks and pencil, creating surreal, intense black and white images, and have hundreds of illustrations available for sale.
I regularly hold exhibitions of my work, and my work is available to buy direct from me or through online galleries.
