I was Born in England and had an interest in art, particularly drawing, from an early age. After leaving school, I did not pursue art professionally or in higher education, but concentrated on making music as a creative outlet. Four years ago I left England to be with my wife in Oregon, and began to study as an Art major at WOU.
Studying art as a non-traditional student has given me a more open minded approach towards making abstract and non-representational art. My attitude now contrasts with my original view that good art was only about copying the physical world, and making works as ‘true to life’ as possible. I now find it easier to make an artwork, especially sculpture, ‘mine’ by using sketching itself as a source of inspiration.
