Would be artist, Middle aged English chap living in Kent, I have always been interested in art since an early age, and I started off by doing pencil sketches of animals, and progressed onto watercolours, giving these away to members of my family. If I liked it, I painted it.

Between 1996 and 2008 I did not paint a thing, only taking up the paint brush, or in this case the spray can after a visit to a street art exhibition, I thought to myself, how hard can that be?

So I started to experiment with stencils and spray-paint. Progressing onto collage work, the result over the last few years is over 150 artworks, including quite a few commissions. I have sold internationally to America, Canada, New Zealand, Germany,Italy and Switzerland.

Some of my pieces have now been featured in the following magazines, Vogue – January 2016, GQ – February 2016, GQ – March 2016, House of Coco – Spring edition, Coach magazine – issue 23.
