• Me, myself, I as an artist
My history of an artist is one of a personal investigation that started most consciously with the painting of an imaginary dinosaur when I was 9 years old. It was then that I thought "Hey, this is fun and is something I could enjoy and maybe be good at". It has been a visual journey into the figurative and the abstract and the meeting of the two ever since, using variety ofmedia including painting, photography, and most recently video.
I have had a few exhibitions in London and abroad, and work in collections worldwide, but the big artworld is mostly unaware of my presence. But this website gets lots of hits and interest and is a brilliant way of showcasing my work to the whole world, and for people to purchase my art. However, if gallery owner wants to show my work or represent me in their country then please contact me.
My time in the studio is spent painting and being arty! I will play music (loud if it is the middle of the night and no-one is is around). I like working through the night when I am at the studio. I've got a mattress where I can crash if I want to work really, really late. I paint because it is something I enjoy doing - I find it thereputic I guess. It literally is my focus. Being an artist is my life - it is what defines me as a human being.
It was October 2000 when I first uploaded my website and since then I have been able to show my art to the world via the internet, which is such a mind-boggling concept. People from all around this planet earth can view my art, which is just fantastic!
In September 2014, I uploaded this new version of the website which is much more suitable for mobile devices. The original version can be viewed here

There is a lot of stuff on there which isn't on this updated version (but there is a lot of new stuff too!). The old website wasn't suitable for mobile phones or small tabs, so I made this one. As I didn't update the subscription for hosting (too expensive), the website had been down since February 2014. (Sorry about that). Since then I have been working in this new website. Anyway, I hope you like it.
