The Full Story
Its All About me
As an Artist I like to create emotion, reaction and narrative in my work. The Natural World, but manly Animal Life are what inspire and inform me on what direction I need to take, and as the composition slowly comes to life, this new painting has established itself with its own story, its own response to evoke and a sentiment that lingers on.
