Hi everyone. As some of you know, I am in the process of transforming my site into a gallery of sorts for my paintings and paintings of others around the world. If you or someone that you know would like to have your work published on this site either to build a reputation or sell art, please feel free to contact me via my contact page and we’ll take it from there.


This piece above was one of my very first paintings. My third painting, to be more specific. I wasn’t sure what story I wanted to tell, instead I allowed my paint to tell me what to do. I used very standard acrylic paints for this and basic canvas board. Since it was my first painting, I didn’t want the pressure of having to get it right the first time, so I painting on some cheap canvas board for beginners.  This is one of my favorites. So many artists strive for perfection, but something that I’ve learned along the way is that the lack of perfection in a painting is what makes it so…well, perfect.


In my blog I’ll give updates of my paintings, along with tips and mistakes I’ve learned from along the way. If any of you have experiences to share, please feel free to comment below or send your experiences in via my contact page and I’ll happily share them on here.

Anyways! 🙂 Feel free to leave comments below. If you have any inspirations you’d like to share or any questions you have about painting, please ask below. 🙂
