The purpose of my life is to make art for people. I was drawn to Red Bubble as a means of sharing and selling my artwork like a printmaker, via reproductive technologies in a very affordable way. I believe the images I ‘receive’ have something to offer, and have always felt compelled to draw them down. When I have something in me to express, pencil on paper is what I imagine first. It’s a very direct medium, and has complete creative control.A piece has turned out really well when it captures the emotional essence of the narrative, it has immediacy, spontaneity and movement. My artwork titles come last and are simply descriptive of the subject and its narrative.The artists that have freed possibilities in my own work are Frank Auerbach’s intensity and pushing the medium; Willem De Kooning’s losing the figure in gesture; and Francisco Goya’s dark visions. What inspires me most is to find out how it will turn out. That image in my head translated into an artwork, I think it’s that potential that stirs me into creating more art.Subject matter wise they’re deeply personal but I don’t always know what they mean, they’re from the subconscious! I invest as much emotional energy as I can into every drawing, something half-hearted I can’t see as my art. Through art I can express intense experiences and spiritual that I wouldn’t show in my everyday life. To have these moments that transcend the everyday recorded in art, I see that as a great legacy to aspire to.My goal is to be an exhibiting artist. I’m always searching for new, deeper and higher levels of experience, and this searching is reflected in my drawing. When I get into a flow and come out the other end having created something new… they’re moments to live for. And at those times when the viewer feels that way too… it’s just such a great feeling.
