All about me and my latest big thing.

The first thing you need to know about me is that I don’t really understand why artist statements are written in the third person. Generally, as a rule artist statements are written by the artist. Everything on this website (except for the quotes) has been written by me, this is genuinely my voice and my ramblings.

I’ve been working as a full time artist for approximately six years now, my latest venture is art tutoring and I love it you can find out about my Workshops here. Some people like my work, some people don’t and that’s fine, our lives and homes would be terribly boring if we all liked the same thing – I describe my work as Marmite and I love it (coincidently I love Marmite as well) I have found a way of seeing the world that excites me and it is that way of seeing which I try to express when creating a painting.

Last year I was commissioned by Horsham District council to produce four landscape paintings of well known views of the district for their Year of Culture project, the paintings are now finished and will displayed in a solo exhibition "Colourful Places" at Horsham museum and art gallery starting on the 28th of September. You can read all about the start of my big project here.

What I produced took time and consideration. The paintings had to be great on their own as well as together. It’s not a perfect collection of works, if I did it again I would do it differently but I am quietly just a little bit over the moon with how my big HDYoC project has turned out.
