The Artful Dodgers Story

A British boy who started in the 5 star kitchens of London as an apprentice chef eventually cooking for Royalty, Rock and Roll Elite, Politicians and many others.

Looking for adventureI made my way to Melbourne arriving in 1991 with nothing but my beautiful wife and a couple of dollars.
We began our own Property Maintenance Business to make ends meet and 25 years later it has become one of the oldest and most loved cleaning businesses in Melbourne.

3 years ago I became very inspired and had a strong urge to paint, from where I do not know.
I decided to become a professional artist then and there.

People inspire me mostly; hence a lot of my work revolves around the human face. Using colour in unique ways I spontaneously hit the canvas and I am left with a final result.

I'm proud to say my first exhibition sold 8 pieces. Astonishingly enough a renowned art collector has one of my pieces.

My Mission is to bring life and emotion into spaces, I hope you like it.
