About

An emerging artist. A self-directed learner. My interest in art began as a bored child on holidays, was blighted by a high school art teacher and revived (post mid-life crisis) by Betty Edwards. Recently, I have experienced a shift in my artistic journey. Art used to be something I did for myself. Now, art is my way of life and my way of reaching out to others.
I strive to create art which speaks from my heart and soul to yours. Let us wonder together at the beauty of the world and the mystery of humanity.

Influences

My artistic affinities are with John Olsen, Fred Williams, Ian Fairweather, Anselm Kiefer, J.M.W. Turner.
Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, e e cummings, Dylan Thomas, T.S. Eliot, W.B. Yeats and James Joyce feed my poetic soul.
Taoist and Zen sages, particularly in the form of cats, try to keep me centered.
