Art was really the only thing that gave me any passion in my school days. Well that and smoking, skiving, girls and the occasional can of Special Brew. After being asked (not too politely) to leave school early by the powers that be for reasons in later life I now fully understand, my passion for art disappeared along with any qualifications I could have achieved.

After long careers in both the military and the nightclub industry, where I honed my smoking and drinking abilities, I finally discovered my passion for art again by picking up an airbrush to see what I could do with it. This led me to spray cans and the rest, as they say, is history.

My work has been seen in many galleries around the world including London, Miami, LA and Sydney; with many of my pieces now in private collections. My style is simple: If it pops into my head and puts a smile on my face then I will paint it. The outcome can possibly be offensive to some but it is all meant with good intentions and a little dose of dry humour.

I am now in the very fortunate position of being the owner of Reload Gallery where I can spend my days surrounded by art created by the very people that inspire me.
