Art•Life is truly what I believe in & I will represent it in everything that I do.
I created is because I work every spare minute to make my art my life. What you love to do is your ‘Art’ so that’s why I chose a heart & ‘Life’ is precious hence why I chose the diamond. This will forever be a part of anything I create so expect to see hella hearts & diamonds.
My quote in the photo above says it all, it’s too many people living the lives that they are supposed to or told to & are unhappy. If you have a passion for something, that is what you’ve been put here to do & you should be doing what you love. Yes, it may seem impossible, yes it’s hard work, it will take time & you will want to quit sometimes but there will be no better feeling in the world than waking up everyday to do exactly what makes you happy.
This is why I have come up with ‘LIFERS’. It’s the name of my newest series of drawings but more importantly it’s a title I give to the dreamers who are working to live their dream. There are many people who have achieved this. People who have made turned their art into their life, some of these will feature in my new drawings.
If you’re chasing your dream you are a #LIFER.
I am so so close, still working every spare minute I have to make it & when I do make it, you’ll have me as living proof.
CHASE YOUR DREAMS

Art•Life - Hearts & Diamonds
Never take anything that I create at face value. There is always meaning behind & a reason for everything that I do.
When I decide to draw a person, the original photo that I choose to work from, is chosen for a reason. I spend hours searching until I find the right one sometimes I have to find like 10 & keep going back until I decide on one.
When I come up with an idea I don’t go straight & do it. I work on it until it’s exactly what I want, I go back to my ideas to add or remove elements. Sometimes my original ideas don’t go any further but they always lead to bigger & better creations.
Every single thing that I put my name to has the utmost thought put into it.
People may not always get the meaning it at first, or ever. But as long as they are provoked to think about it, question it or go a little deeper than the first glance, then I have done my job. That’s the connection I want, for the eyes to look but the mind to see.
