Biography


 

 
I would be lying if I said I always wanted to be an artist and that it was some romantic lifelong passion. I lasted an hour in the Louvre, got bored and went for cocktails. My only art experience was doodling during soulless, unfulfilling office jobs where I created a series of emotional vegetables - grumpy parsnip, angry onion, nervous carrot....well, you get the idea (contact me with your favourite vegetable and emotion and we can work something out). Update - my mother has since informed me that I actually featured in one of my favourite childhood magazines - Super Ted! My drawing of him won a competition to be included in a special edition, so really that's my biggest art achievement to date and may be for some time. Not sure I could ever beat that to be honest, even if one of mine was hung next to the Mona Lisa.
 
It was not until 2020 during the first Covid lockdown that the universe gifted me art. What started as a lockdown hobby with 4 paints and acrylic paper in a bedroom, escalated into LED panel lighting, shadow boxes, easels and oils (still in a bedroom). Currently being coached by Stefan Baumann (PBS, The Grand View).
