"I'm no expert on social media, but after being told about a million times I needed to get something going, I did, So! if you're so inclined feel free to check out the instagram feed, its not a daily posting site by any means and its revolves entirely around the work, so no selfies it does however offer a little closer look at some of the occurances in and out of the studio..... hope you enjoy!"
"Live the life you were meant to live, find your peace, do this and you wont need to make excuses for yourself each day or ever seek reasons to escape the life you're living"
"Being a painter I have chosen to a live a life close to the wild places, as an artist you simply can not over immerse yourself in the inspirational subject matter that constantly occupies the forefront of your mind. I value immensely my time spent afield as it serves to bring me ever closer to the things that I know and love, those meaningful places and things that I love to put down in paint."
