  • Biography
    Gay art is hugely important to me, as it offers a meaningful way to be visible, which I feel is a truly significant thing for us gheys. In history, gay artists are where my true loves and influences lie: Sargent, foremost. Pictures of naked men are something I'm encouraged to branch out from, but this subject chose me, I suppose!! 

    But it's not all torsos, I promise - I love geometry, particularly Islamic; I have a thing for moody Nordic painters; I really, really love the playfulness of artists like Andrew Salgado. Portraits are my next big thing. 

    I'm a self-taught painter, Welsh born and London based. Let me know if you like my stuff, or what you see in it (I'm also a secret growth hacker)
