I possess a real knack for solving problems really efficiently. Right now my two real passions are drawing realistic portraits from photographs and modelling realistic creatures as well as stylised cartoony characters, and texturing them.

I am an independent musician/songwriter. I am making an album which gives an enormous nod to The Beach Boys. I have most of the songs written and a few recorded. I intend to make a video for each song, and after experiencing the difficulties in filming a live action video, I have decided to go down the 60's comic book route. The video will consist of about 20 scripted cartoons in the style of 'Archie' comic books so that it has that 60's feel.

My art is a combination of canvas, spray paint and creativity. I started painting an exciting world of space, planets and stars across the institutional white walls of my bedroom. That opened up the world and I have barely put the spray paint down since then. Never one to be content with one style, I am constantly experimenting with mediums and movement. My creations are heavily influenced by music, colour and my passion for snowboarding and the outdoors. A student of life, I view everything as inspiration for my art.
