Based in United Kingdom
Firstly I would like to say thank you for taking the time to look at my work and read this Bio. I have recently made the decision to become a full time artist having spent many years creating artwork in my spare time. I am completely self-taught and have no academic qualifications to speak of; everything I have learnt has been through trial and a lot of error! As a child I was always to be found drawing something or other but was fascinated watching my father paint in oils in the front room of our house, so it was only a matter of time before I tried and fell in love with it myself. I have used oils, watercolours, pen and ink, pencil, charcoal, airbrush and other abstract materials with which to create art. I painted works on commission while serving in the military and completed several large paintings of military subjects for a number of Regiments within the armed services. Currently I work mainly in oils and charcoal. You may describe me as a realist as I like to put detail into my art however I am now attempting to free myself from the constraints of detail and produce figurative art with a looser style. This is an on going struggle that I am enjoying. Art is subjective, everyone has different tastes and styles that they enjoy, I myself try not to stick to one subject, or type of art, but instead let my passion pull me in any direction it wishes to. I do not feel the need to give my art any deep meaning, I simply like to produce art that I enjoy making and, most importantly, that those people that acquire it can look at and enjoy. It has taken me 55 years to understand that producing art in any form is what truly makes me happy, so from now on that is what my life and struggles will be about. I hope you enjoy looking at my work and if you have any ideas for a specific artwork please feel free to contact me through this website.
