Professional Information
 

I am extremely hard working and I embrace new technology and tools believing that the old masters would have used such facilities if they were available to them. As such, I am at a reasonably advanced level of understanding of Adobe and other image processing tools. 


As a previous Managing Director of a courier and logistics company, I have an innate ability to organise myself and motivate others to achieve quality results to a defined schedule. My planning ability is complemented by my enthusiasm to enter open art competitions and established a wide network of artistic contacts. My efforts are being rewarded as I won the Surrey Open art exhibition in May 2012 and have already been approached by a number of galleries who are showing an interest in my work.I am confident in my ability to achieve my goal to be a successful artist, yet conscious that I still have a lot to learn.
