About me...

After studying graphic design at art college and university I took design commissions here and there to fund the financial black hole that is playing drums in a band. Then, kind of out of the blue in 2004 I was given the opportunity to visit Paraguay in South America.

 

I came to brighten up a children's home with some funky murals...just for two months, and love the country so much I'm still here. Murals - 500 painted so far in schools, children's homes, restaurants and town halls across the country and I'm not finished yet.

With my canvases, unlike most artists who look for new ways to add texture, I look for new ways to remove it. With my painting I strive for the cleanest lines possible (I put this down to years of creating murals and vector illustrations). I want it to look printed.

Over the years many of my illustrations and design commissions have been for original lichtenstein-esque Pop art. I've always loved the striking colors, accessible, familiar imagery and - more importantly to me, with so much dark art out there - it's ability to bring warmth, life and a sense of fun to any space. It's these attributes I seek to include in all my pieces. Welcome to my gallery, and thanks for coming.
