As a kid I always had the urge to create. Whatever that came up in my environment and seemed interesting to me, I would approach. We had
a workshop in our house so I explored that and made things, including explosives. I had a sister in art college so I invaded her marker sets and darkroom supplies for photo developing. We naturally had a kitchen so I wanted to cook. I imagine it's like that for a lot of kids with curiosity. Or not.
By the end of high school i was eyeing a future in visual art and that I got. I have worked in graphic design, photography, and video. While my studies centred on portraiture and the figure in art, it has not been until recent years that I am increasingly producing more painted works.
