Passion of Art mixed with the buzz of life, balancing a busy life finding the time to create my work is a challenge by its self. With a supportive Wife makes everything that bit more easier. I have a full time job assisting the public in a high demanding job role. Those who have young children, working from home with COVID-19 know how easy it is haha. I found a balance to make time so I can manage to do some work. Its gives me great pleasure to draw and paint for its a way to express feelings to paper without saying a word it's pure escapism. I always knew I loved art from when I was a child. It has always been my escapism and with all that is wrong in the world somehow everything about Art seems so right.
I grasp a lot of inspiration from memories, nature and visualization from other Artists. Seeing the way other Artists see the world opens a deeper creative side inside me.
My children are equally inspired and seeing them express their own creative imagination opens energetic amount of Joy for me.
The magic of Art speaks a thousand volumes of words and emotions. Imagining what the is in the minds eye is one thing but seeing of from the mind reflecting back to the eyes of sight brings a different approach. Now others can see what I wanted to create and will touch you in a different way than I intended it too. This my friends is my idea of Art.
I enjoy using different media to create different ideas in a never stopping evolving world and I feel this is important to me so I am moving in motion with the time around me.
Work / Education
I Studied at various Colleges, Waltham forest Art and Media, New Vic East London, Art and Design. A Level art. Putting truth of visual awareness is what true art is all about. I have had a lot of pleasure studying Art with the God given talent I was born with. I guess I was always faced with negative temptation that could have pushed me over the edge. When I left my School, King Alfreds in Watage oxfordshire I moved to London and Lived with my Sister after loosing my Granddad whom I looked up to as a father was like loosing a huge part of me and being mixed race I never really felt like I was home. My Sister lived in East London Becton and when I walked into NewVic it was full of culture and for the first time in my life I felt like I was home.
I realized how vast Art is and how its used in so many industries. I got to enjoy Media studies, Fashion and creative arts. I helped organised and created a TV production for ZigZag with rapper Goldie for world deadliest gangsters.
I then went on to study a Waltham Forrest College in Walthamstow and got to create some beautiful still life drawings. Unfortunately my work was stolen but never allowed this to get n my way for I learnt something no matter what is taken from me can never take the best part of me.
So after a roller coaster of studying and working in different jobs I found I could use my Art in. some Unusual places such as Topps Tiles, I understood different textures of Tiles from Marble, Stone, ceramic and Porcelain.
MFI, I became professional on CAD. Deigning Bathrooms, Bedrooms and Kitchens. I got stuck creating CAD designs for a while but the buzz died when the culture of customers designing their home was no longer pleasurable.
Now I work shifts at a desk taking inbound calls for faults and emergencies but the key benefit of this work is I get to talk to a lot of interesting amazing individuals. I also have the pleasure to relax and create using Pencil and water color. For me is a great choice of media
