Bio

I’ve been practicing art in one form or another for most of my life and have been focusing more on painting since around 2003. I do explore other mediums, but primarily I use either oils or acrylics.

For me art has always been about the enjoyment of drawing and creating. It’s about challenging my eye, my brain and my hands to recreate what I am seeing on a two dimensional surface.

So far, my paintings have been influenced by anything that resembles my old work boots. In other words, anything that shows it’s character in the history of its use, in the cracks and creases caused by work, abuse, weathering and age.

Other than that, I paint things that are readily available. Anything around the house that looks interesting enough to keep me painting!
