My Background

I am a largely self taught painter and have enjoyed drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I love the process of drawing and painting from the first idea, through building the composition and layout, to watching the work grow in the making.

My Mediums

When drawing I use graphite, occasionally colored graphite and also colored pencils. When painting I use acrylics, sometimes in the manner of oil painting, sometimes like watercolors and sometimes a combination.

My Inspiration

The whole visual world has a ‘gravity’ for me that draws me continually to see everything around me as color, light and shadow, shapes and their relationships, design within design.

I'm constantly seeing ideas for drawings and paintings. The problem is deciding which ideas to put on the list!
