When I was a kid, to become, or dream of becoming, an artist, was beyond anyone’s consideration. There were no ‘real artists’ in the small town where I lived and art was for children and children alone, with their sloppily painted sunsets, stick figures and eight-colour, crayon creations. Art was not an option.
So how did I end up here- drawing, painting, designing for a living?
The cheesy truth is that I can’t not be an artist. I can’t resist the urge to draw, doodle, build, & create. I can’t deny the feeling of home when I hold a paintbrush or see a palette of colour. This is who I am. And this is what I love.
I'm a visual artist inspired by the unselfconscious, rudimentary imagery of primitive art, wild colours of fauvism, and the simplified design of modern art. I created PiCADOOdesign so I could work with art every day and share it with the world.
