I am an artist and a blogger who supports other independent creatives with practical advice, tips. and insight from my 30+ years of experience of the art world through my regular blog and social media updates.
I primarily use digital techniques and digitally create by hand with a stylus. I also paint using traditional mediums too. I specialise in creating retro and vintage inspired artwork and have worked on this body of work since the 1980s. I also paint nature, landscapes, and abstracts and have completed many commissions for book covers and artwork for use in TV and film productions.
As an artist, I am fascinated by the nostalgia and aesthetic of retro technology. My body of work explores the intersection of popular culture and technology from the 1980s and 1990s, capturing the essence of a time when technology was rapidly advancing and shaping the world around us.
Each piece in my collection is hand-painted and drawn, with an eye for detail and realism that captures the texture, form, and spirit of the objects I depict. My work invites the viewer to reflect on the cultural significance of these iconic technological devices, and how they shaped our daily lives, our relationships, and our collective imagination.
Whether it's a vintage computer, a classic gaming console, or a beloved toy from yesteryear, each piece in my collection is a celebration of the technology that shaped an entire generation. Through my art, I aim to preserve the memory of these objects and the role they played in our cultural history, while also exploring the timeless themes of innovation, creativity, and the impact of technology on our lives.
My work is more than just a nostalgic tribute to the past. It is a commentary on the rapid pace of technological change and its effects on our lives, and a testament to the enduring power of art to capture the essence of a moment in time.
