How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I find realism art has always suited me much better than abstract work. My 31 year career as an engineer helps with the technical aspects of developing the new and unique genre of 'Art on Leather'. Painting on leather complements my style of painting. I also do occasional commission works on oils and acrylic.

My leather artwork is used in designer accessories and apparel.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Creating art that excites the senses. Look, touch, smell and the emotional response to collectors of my art. Pushing new boundaries of creativity in developing the art on leather concept covering wall art as well as illustrated leather apparel.
