2017. ././ . Its been a seriously long year, its been a seriously tough year and I’m only just reaching the end of the the beginning…
There has been a massive shift and change of course in my art work. The past four years have seen a long and slow decrease in the out put of Original Artworks and a sharp increase in the output of Drawings and Tattoo designs. it has been a conscious effort to pursue a career that allows me to create everyday, change peoples lives and develop as an Artist. I am on the cusp of achieving this goal and becoming a licensed Tattoo Artist, But that’s not the end of the journey it is in fact only the beginning of a new field to explore.
While Painting will always remain a true love of mine, Drawing, Design and Tattooing will be at the forefront of my output now, which has over the past few years given me completely new ideas to explore, New challenges to overcome and new skills to master.. ././.
