The very best part of my job is the delivery of a finished painting. It’s a nerve wracking moment wondering if I’ve got the design right and that the recipient not only likes it but LOVES it. When time and location allows I love to deliver original paintings in person or even help set up a special reveal to make the moment memorable.
I paint because it makes me happy. When I paint for someone else it makes both me and them happy. Then when they arrange for the painting as a gift for their special someone it makes three of us happy! It’s contagious, this happiness lark and that is why this is the best part of the job.
Every Sunday I will publish a short film that will take you with me on my ‘who knows where’ adventures finding inspiration and then back to the studio taking you through the stages of creating a finished piece of art.

I've always been inspired by the INXS lyrics "we all have wings but some of us don't know how to fly" so much so it's sneaked into many of my paintings, sketches and illustrations
Sit with me
I often think it's a phrase, a lyric or a well crafted sentiment that inspires my work. I keep a journal of snippets of sentences or overheard conversations. These often work as prompts for work to begin
