Creative Influence
I am a hard-working, reliable and self-motivated individual. I am always enthusiastic and work to the best of my ability.
I have many artistic interests including illustration, graphic design, animation, sculpting and photography. However, my passion lies in oil painting, using different techniques and media to create art works on canvas. I am especially interested in art history and learning from the true artists of our past.

With in my paintings i tent to flow between two styles, i am two different people or even three the first is painting in a very classical form of old style of smooth 7 layer painting perfecting the beauty of skin, clothing, nature and architecture, while the second i am very loose and push towards painting scenes of nature and animals with thick paint covering the canvas with bright colours and interesting shapes and perspectives, scenes of beauty.

Technical Skills

I am skilled in programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, After Effects and I have an understanding of Maya and Max 3D programs. While studying animation I have used video editing software as well as 2D animation software Toon Boom and including Flash. I am a self taught painter and I have taught myself many ways of painting like the masters, utilising a variety of style and media. Natural eye for Typography.
