When was the first moment you decided you wanted to be an artist?

Always. I was just encouraged a lot by my mum as a kid. I liked drawing and messing. And I was good at it. They did worry & try point me towards design but that was to limiting for me. So painting is where I am happiest.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Everywhere. Life!

If you could work with another artist, who would it be? / who is your favorite artist?

Such a difficult question, so many and in different fields influences are often music. So I gotta say Chuck D from Public Enemy, Keith Haring, Chris Stains, Barry McGee, Pollack, Warhol, Norman Rockwell, The Damned, Pixies, Henry Rollins, The Beastie Boys, Johnny Cash, Hunter S Thompson, Harper Lee, Nick Cave and it goes on & on. Energy is attractive & inspirational. Too many.

What has been the best moment in your career?

Yesterday.

What is your ideal day?

Painting is very solitary. It's a lot of time on your own. Studio visitors kinda get in the way. So anytime I can paint outdoors & see friends is ideal. Good food helps too

Why do you create art?

I am lucky enough to know it's what I am suppose to do. I feel it's my identity & reason.

How has your art changed throughout your life?

The internet. The internet has opened the door to so much work but I still believe nothing compares then time spend I front of great beauty so visit galleries on all my travels.

What is your dream project?

We've just started working on it! I can't say to much beyond it's a large series of portraits and it'll start coming out around new year. I like short term dreams.

What is the best piece of advice you have received?

Be honest in every way & get up & try again every time your knocked down.
