Where did you grow up?
When did you first become interested in art?
As a teenager. I went on to art foundation school.
How did you pursue your desire to be a painter?
When I started to show my work to friends, they encouraged me on.
What is the artistic lifestyle like? Take us through a typical day.
I wake up go to my regular work. if I get a chance I will sketch in my vehicle anything that moves me. I’ll come home and go straight to my studio and start working on that more into a defined sketch, then a painting. I get days that it just won’t go my way. I’ll come back again. I always keep painting to keep me from been rusty.
Do you paint every day, or only when the inspiration hits you?
Most days. When I’m really tired I just can’t get inspired.
Choose one of your paintings and explain your inspiration behind it.
This piece from my latest watercolour would be an inspiration. I get my inspiration from places I love, otherwise I can’t paint with enthusiasm.
Where is your favourite place to paint?
Mostly the sea or Marine life.
Which artists have most inspired you and why?
Edward Seago & John Skelton.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m working on a piece with yachts on still water and reflections.
At which location (or who) would you love the opportunity to paint?
I don’t have any particular places of interest. Only what stirs me. I know when I find it.
