I started painting in mid 2011, having never painted or drawn before, although my career involved the use of Microsoft PowerPoint in developing technical documents and presentations.   I researched how artists started and typically and most commonly, even when at art schools, the approach was to copy past artists.  Having identified a few artists I then chose to work with Acrylic paints, my research suggested that this medium provided vivid colours, fast drying time (literally minutes) and ease to overpaint when wanting to make changes.  I started drawing using the grid method and then with great joy started painting. I cannot over emphasise the excitement of creating a painting without the mental anguish associated with creating a composition.  This approach also allowed me to become a master in the use of Acrylics.  

2014 I started painting bottles, I created a name 'Wockamaloo' being unique on the internet, prices then started at £17 today they sell for £44 and will increase annually as the popularity and complexity of the art applied grows.  Some of the early works included Lowery faces and always my unique images.

2019 Today I paint on any material, paper, old prints, canvas, wood and of course wine bottles.  I always try to create a quality that will provide years of pleasure and is considered worthy of saving by your future generations.

I welcome commissions for resturants, public houses, clubs and business receptions, the larger the better!
