Why do you feel the need to create a piece of art? It creates a time of tranquillity and meditation for me, I’m in my shed with my dogs Gorgeous George and Spud the Mutt. I love forests, nature and the way the seasons change the way everything looks, I try to capture this the best I can.
“I’m still evolving as an artist, I am quite shy and it’s been difficult to gain the courage to show my artwork”.
“I particularly don’t like the extremely narrow minded clique of the art world.”
Where did your style of painting come from? Well I’m self taught, so don’t take much notice of styles as I think I don’t have one yet lolol, maybe never will! We are all very close to nature, whether you see it or not.
Is there a story behind the coloured animals in the paintings? I just love the magical tales of Hares, Foxes, Wolves, Deer, they are all in the best fairy tales, so I sneak in a little magical animal now and again.
What would a perfect creative life look like to you? A perfect creative life would be for me the ability to carry on getting inspired, carry on painting in my shed, especially now that the world and everyone on it is struggling with Covid.
How do creative ideas find you? All ideas come mostly straight from my head, or a dream i may have, a piece of music i’m listening too, a stroll with my dogs It’s all an energy trip.
What would you like to see changed about the art world and why. Well, everything, I particularly don’t like the extremely narrow minded clique of the art world. I would love it if they would go away and let artists be artists. I can’t see why a handful of opinions by so called ‘experts’ can destroy dreams.
