When people ask me what kind of artist I am, I always say that I am a painter.
Whether this is because it is easier to say so, or because of romance behind the concept of being a painter, I do not know. I do know however that I have a long journey ahead of me, as essentially I am a self taught painter and therefore I am constantly learning and my style is constantly evolving. My apologies for the low quality images, I have never taken my work in to be photographed properly.
This first painting is a self-portrait, inspired (quite obviously) by Van Gough, one of my all time favourite painters.
Some images from the “Cone Heads” series
