My catalogue of work is available to view at my social media below and gallery on this website.
Where did you grow up?
I was born in Essex, where I have lived on the outskirts of Southend throughout my teenage life. I developed my artistic skills from a really young age which lead to me wanting to explore my passion in secondary school with the support of my art teacher and my family.
When did you start drawing?
Probably at about the age of 5. Because I was born with Delayed Development which caused me to not talk for the first 11 years of my life, it forced me to use art to communicate with the outside world in ways many people would find difficult. This made me interested in art from a very early age and, as my vocabulary slowly developed, so did my interest and understanding of the ways we can communicate through the use of art.
Do you go to college to study art?
Yes I do. I recently passed an Art and Design Level 3 Course at college and I am starting an Art Foundation Course at the same college in September 2016.
What type of art do you create? And what themes do you cover in your artwork?
I create a range of artwork in many styles and media in my personal time and at college but I mainly create and specialise in pointillism artwork which you can see on this website. I’m interested in covering many topics in my art; it can range from political, social, historical and spiritual themes whilst also incorporating a surreal style. This encourages the viewer to engage in my art whilst also thinking about the messages expressed within and what it is saying to the viewer.
How long have you been doing pointillism for? And what do you draw with the style?
To many people I’m a newcomer to pointillism as I’ve been doing it for about 2 years. But with this style of art I can draw many themes which can cover just about anything.
How can I buy your art?
Within my gallery, as well as commissions, you are able to purchase my art which is available as originals with authenticity certification or as limited edition prints. Just email me for details and prices.
How can I ask for a Commission?
It’s simple, you can send me an email to my email address where we can talk about what you want in your commission in full detail. I have recently taken commissions for pets so feel free to send me photos of what you want drawn as well.
How much are Commissions?
For an A4 size, commissions start at around £38
