Displayed at a gallery in London, this picture came within 1 point of winning £20,000 in the 2003 Not the Turner Prize competition with ten thousand entries. It was an experiment using oil paint for the first time, I wanted to find out how far I could push it and how fine I could go with the detail. Oil on board size 18x26 inches

   About me :


    This is something I do in my spare time, in between full time work, studying, and restoring four classic cars. For the last five years I have been working as a Switchboard Fitter in Christchurch New Zealand. Originally from Bournemouth, England, I moved here in 2005. I survived the disasters in 2011 and count myself very lucky.

From a very early age my father encouraged me to draw a variety of subjects at home. By the age of eleven, I had a keen interest in photography. Following on from my school years were I gained O Levels in Art and Technical Drawing, I spent the latter 5 months of 1987 at art college studying technical illustration where I gained a sound understanding of perspective, ellipses and foreshortening, plus good quality drawing instruments and an airbrush. With the advent of computer aided drawing, I left the course and decided that the art was to stay as a hobby for the time being.

After the unexpected success in the art competition where I was placed second in 10,000 entries, I moved as far from my birthplace as is possible to go. Following my divorce I moved to New Zealand for a fresh start. I sold my first oil painting for $13,500, then had an offer of $20k for the painting which followed. I have spent the last 8 years rebuilding my life and getting stronger mentally and physically. The five years building switchboards here really sharpened up my act and helped me to realise that you get out of life what you put into it.
