This is where it all started, well sort of. 2005 was the year I went fulltime after leaving a call centre job. I was painting prior on small supports but this was the real beginning for me. I used a lot of texture and metallic finishes. I have always loved the look of patina and beautiful colours in bland surrounds. So most of the paintings you see here have some sort of metallic addition or features as a main part with colourful additions. I also created a lot of mixed media collage trees, plus a few random ideas I created in between the main projects. You may notice a red painting with black swirls... well that was the beginning to my big journey that was slowly approaching.
