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!
