|About||An independent Artist offering a vibrant array of original art, canvas prints and modern aluminium reproductions, commissions undertaken.|
A budding Essex Artist, using the power of art to aid recovery from a severe Stroke (February 2017). Spending over six months in hospital and under home rehabilitation, during this time my love of art along with my determination to overcome challenges to return to my family has helped with my recovery.
My spark for Art started when my Grandad, a former miner from the North East,who was encouraged to draw to free himself from the darkness of the mines, taught me how to draw as a boy. This fascination along with the stories he used to tell me really ignited my passion for art, leading me to study this at further education.
Prior to my Stroke I was employed in the Construction industry as a tradesman, however the Stroke has left me unable to continue in this line of work. I hope to turn my love of Art into a business and use this as an example to hopefully help other people suffering from the effects of disabilities.
The Stroke really knocked me off of my feet but my determination to prove to my Son that challenges can be overcome along with my passion for art has really helped drive me on. Whilst the road ahead is still a long one, I hope to turn it into one filled with expression and art for others to enjoy.
I am happy to discuss commissions and hope you enjoy my work.
