Picking up a pencil constantly and drawing at a very young age, taught me the value of creating something from nothing. Further education at Art College, enhanced my confidence and skill set. It was my early career in Architectural design and construction, that really exposed me to the technical side of Art.
I use many different types of mediums, such as graphite pencil, various grades of vine and compressed charcoal sticks and charcoal pencils, acrylic, soft and water soluble pastels, plus watercolour pans and tubes. I believe that working in a any single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual and unique style, especially when doing mixed media projects.
I enjoy travelling and my passion for wildlife and nature is my inspiration. Using a wide variety of different colours excites me. It allows me to express or arouse an emotion, which I hope others feel too.
