The work I will submit will mainly be portraits, with the odd bit of graphic/tattoo design and a few Koda (my husky) photos thrown in for good measure!

“He who works with his hands is a labourer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands, his head and his heart is an artist.” – St Francis of Assisi

When friends and family would call me an artist I would get really aggravated about it, I guess at the time my heart wasn’t in it; art for me was always just something I did when I was bored. I started taking drawing seriously when my Grandad started telling me I was good at it; he was an oil painter, and I was always impressed with how much detail he could get into his work, how perfect it was. He’s my inspiration; that’s why I work so hard on my portraits, it’s frustrating but I love trying to get every part as perfect as I can. I like to finish a drawing thinking “my Grandad would be proud of that.”

I wouldn’t call myself an artist in the normal sense of the word, I think art is less a thing that is created but more the passion and determination that goes into creating it, so I try to do anything I start as an ‘artist’; as someone who can be proud of anything I do, knowing that I've worked hard and achieved something even if it's just learning from a mistake so that I can do the next thing better. That’s what my Grandad taught me.

I studied art at college (specialising in Graphic Design), though I would still call myself a completely self-taught artist, it definitely made me more confident with my work and gave me a respect for all artists. The views I had on art were always strong and passionate but extremely specific. I love the work of Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rossetti, with a strong respect for them and similar artists but thought that most well known contemporary artists were too pretentious and self-obsessed. After college I have entirely changed my view on the subject. I can confidently and truthfully say I have fallen in love with art, from the Renaissance artists and Pre-Raphaelites to more contemporary artists and Graphic Designers. The skills I’ve gained have helped me find a love for art and a respect for all artists’ work.
