I originally got into art by accident, as a kid I had no artistic talent, I still remember one of my early high school teacher's making a comment on how bad my history battle field sketch was.
At the stage of having to choose my GCSE’s, I choose all subjects that were academic, but was told I needed to pick a creative subject too.
Music was a definite no no, I am completely tone deaf.
Drama was a even bigger no no, I was a very quiet shy person at school, school was not a happy place for me.
So art it was. The first year of GCSE was wasted just drawing cartoon characters and just not taking any interest in the subject at all.
Then came year 2 of GCSE, I had a new teacher, he opened my eyes to what art could be about, and I was encouraged to try lots of new styles and media's.
To my surprise I found I actually enjoyed art and over the year got to be OK at creating art pieces, that I passed my art GCSE with my best grade, A.
I decided to continue studying Art at A' level, my art teacher from GCSE was also the A level teacher, with his help I continued to improve and found areas of art that I preferred, at this point I was enjoying using acrylic paints, and experimenting with colour in the style of Franz Marc. I also liked the impressionist artist Paul Cezanne.
On finishing A levels I dipped in and out of my art as and when life allowed.
I started drawing again in 2009 after realising I taken a 10 year break, I quickly found that I had a passion for doing pencil portraits. My style evolved over a few years.
Due to unforeseen circumstances I ended up taking another long break from my art, almost 7 years.
My brother asked me to do a portrait of his daughter in the sleeping baby pose to match the ones I did of his older sons. This was the motivation I needed to get back to drawing.
