MIXED MEDIA GRAPHIC PRINTS, BOOKS & ARTWORK
I have always been drawn to art, (no pun intended) pretty much anything creative really, but it is people, faces, the human form, moments in time, emotions, hidden stories in eyes, bodies and movements of the subjects that will never stop hypnotising me.
Then I was blessed with two daughters and my love of portraiture became even deeper, even more important than before. I realised that the hidden stories in their pictures, will form part of my legacy, then in turn part of theirs.
In today’s culture, families are increasingly viewing their images exclusively in a digital form, but does an image on a mobile phone, tablet or computer screen have the same impact on the viewers, and the family unit as a whole? Are the stories in the pictures better told on a wall, in a room, in a home? Does it actually matter to anyone but me?
Then I read this in an article “did you know the simple act of having your families’ photographs hung in your house increases your children’s self-esteem?” and it got me thinking . . .
If I can create portraits (which I love doing), of my children (who I love), that can actually help with the way they feel about themselves, (which is my job as a father) then why not start immediately. So I did.
Then that got me thinking . . . would anyone else want one of these? Could I relive my days at art school, painting acrylic portraits for beer money?
“Yes I can” I said. So I did. I still am. Single portraits, classic, graphic, mixed media, large format, printed, framed, sets, books, sets of books, you get it.
