From time to time my work has featured in exhibitions, art galleries and Disney magazine and features in a few private collections.
Everyone needs inspiration and here are the artists and works which inspired me.
My artistic statement
I believe that art of all kinds is food for the soul.
My aim is to make art which follows the ABC of art:
As I and my work develop and change I will continue to paint and see where the journey takes me.
During the COVID pandemic I have been making a video diary of some of the things I have been up to. Here it is.
