"My wife and I also have three kids and I think it’s important that they see us putting our time and efforts into something we are passionate about."
Interview by Henry Gomez
Q1. In your own words, please explain what it is you do.
"Girl in coeruleum blue"
I’m useless at keeping any record of the number of hours I put in to any particular piece. I tend to have a number of works on the go at any one time and chop and change.
"Study of Latoya"
Q9. How long does a portrait usually take you to complete and what process do you follow?
I always start of with a simple line drawing and after that the technical side of my work is purely down to trial and error! It’s funny. The finished result appears quite tidy, but I’m constantly adjusting, painting and re-painting areas, often sanding whole areas back. Ultimately, (I hope) this gives the work depth.
Q12. Are there any courses or classes you could recommend someone take if they want to be a professional in the same field as yourself?
I’m not qualified to give that kind of advise as I didn’t have much success at art school!
