plein air sketch (18 )
My background has mainly been in music , i was a freelance trumpet player mainly working on the cruise ships and seeing the world - After living in my sisters garage for over 10 years -suffering for ones art ! i recently took a trip to a friend who had just moved to Sicily and loved the light and countryside so as if by chance i found a place i could actually afford to own ! so now I'm living in a a small mountain village around 25 miles from Syracuse in south east Sicily .Its a little of a struggle not knowing the language - but i hope to get better ...Unfortunately things didnt work out in Sicily-now back in the UK
Art has always been my other passion, it wasn't long ago i decided to make a go of selling my Art . I've got a pretty good reaction, and so I continue to paint and always will.
Painting is such a love for me and I try to be honest to it , but it is always a battle between the eye and the heart with hope that a truth lies within .
I hope you enjoy some of my efforts.
