I constantly sketch as i progress through my days, I daydream ideas from what is in the present, i engage& wonder at the unusual that attracts my visual & thought attention and at some point in time these three elements combine to initiate a new work. These key points generate a further evolution to transpire as an artwork progresses, mistakes rectified or covered, new techniques and/or ideas are introduced and the brush takes the lead to the outcome that presents its own soul.
A hobbyist painter entering fulltime artistic pursuits some 10 years ago after a work life in finance & business consulting. Challenging business situations are now replaced by new and equally abstract unknowns within my art endeavours. My life journey is what I feel over-rides my artwork outcomes as ever constant change is a great driver to my technique and character diversity..
Over-riding influences to my artwork are enjoyment, the ability to express myself as "me", it is how I see things. Sketching makes you look deeper into an object, a vista, a potential subject to pinpoint what & why something attracted me in the first place. Discussions and viewing works by like minded associates is huge and often directs you on a quest for more knowledge that in turn takes one on a never ending journey of discovery. This journey is to me what art is all about - an adventure.
