About me

 

 

 

Hello, thanks for checking out my website! Here's a little bit about me. I have always had a fascination in art and pictures ever since I was a small boy. I gained a grade A in O`Level art and left school not really knowing what I wanted to do with my life. I completed a HND in Graphic Design by the age of 20 but was not convinced this was where my interests lay. A succession of jobs followed while my love of painting grew. In my spare time I taught myself how to paint and read every art book I could get my hands on. My style has constantly evolved, initially I was very interested in the impressionists and their bold use of colour.

 

Gradually my paintings became more imaginary. In recent years I have become fascinated with artists that have been loosely grouped under the title of "Northern School" These artists hail from the industrial North West of England, painting everyday scenes of their hometowns and the folk that live there.  I have many favourites including, L.S Lowry, Peter Brook, Alan Lowndes, John Thompson, Liam Spencer....the list goes on. Though I am influenced by some of these people I always try to do my own thing.

 

I am quite known for adding greyhounds and whippets in my paintings, breeds which many Northern folk have kept down the years. I also enjoy doing quick landscape oil sketches, capturing those fleeting moments in time.

 

In January 2014 I took voluntary redundancy from my full time job and I'm now pursuing my art full time. I'm dedicating all my effort now to being the best artist that I can. I'm happy to say my paintings are becoming increasingly collectable. I have customers from all over the world, and have sent works to many countries including, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and all over Europe. Its hopefully going to be a long and exciting journey. I am grateful for every painting I sell, and hope some of you will be interested enough to follow me in my progress.
