About The Artist
I sketch and photograph exclusively in my travels. Things that influence; Greek and Roman mythology, flashbacks from my knowledge of other artists work , scenes, Luminous signs, movements on TV, everyday life, and people. I draw and paint from life, everyday, wherever possible.
Much of my work includes the human figure, I'm a believer in the ability to draw; it is the essential language in any painting and what was expressive single image is available to an artist other than the human figure to build up a store of basic knowledge of form to necessitate improvisation. Greek and Roman mythology is a source of inspiration to which I often revert classical drawings of Michelangelo and Rembrandt have been a base for me, the extraordinary technical skill and power of Egon Schiele's drawings provide an inspirational source.
