Painting is something I enjoy doing; I find it is a great way to relieve the increasing stress and boredom of life, whilst bringing me a lot of satisfaction and hopefully, pleasure and thought to people who view the paintings or photos.
I often take photographs and use them as a reference. Although some of the photos I take, are just left to speak for themselves.
I started painting seriously about 3 or 4 years ago and it's an interest than has (hopefully) being developing since. I also draw and prefer waterproof drawing pens rather than traditional pencils.
Inspiration comes from different sources including other artists (living and dead), I am often inspired by the beauty of nature and the outdoors
