I’ve been making art for over 20 years, it’s only in the last few years I’ve decided to start sharing. I never thought anyone would really be interested, but it’s really taken off and I’ve found myself with tons of fans from all corners of the globe.
I come from a visual arts graphic design background, although colour blind I’ve never let this stop me or limit what I try and do with my art.
I work with the idea of an alternate reality, I don’t really limit myself to any one particular style. Surrealism, abstract, pop art, dark dangerous liaisons, but mostly humour fill my pieces.
I’ll focus on getting a message or idea out in under 10 minutes, I can’t stay focused on anything for much longer or I lose interest, I get hungry, I have to go to the bathroom and then I have to wash my hands. Most of my collages are trying to tell a story or have a theme if you can’t laugh at it, it’s not working and you need to start on something else.
Having fun with art is the key, I have a high-stress 9-5, coming home making art forgetting about it all for a couple of hours until the next day is important to me.
I really like mixing black and white old images with stunning colour hi-res and the contrast it creates makes me happy! I love any visual media that provokes thought, humour and stimulates conversation with anyone from anywhere.
A few random questions we asked SMNT!
What is the cutest thing on the planet?
I’m a big fan of Sloths, an amazing animal, maybe my spirt animal.
Have you ever stalked your ex online?
Oh yes, everyone does, it’s part of the breakup process.
What is the strangest food or food combination you enjoy eating?
I like mixing biscuits and crisps, all the flavors all together at the same time, close your eyes and taste the rainbow.
Do you pick your nose?
Yes, who doesn’t, discretion is the key for this one, I do it privately. The last thing you need is to be caught by a bus load of school kids at the traffic lights.
