I am a self taught painter and poet which I do in the spare time left over from working full time. I paint mostly with acrylics, I don’t really fit into any category as I just paint whatever I want. Sometimes I will get an idea other times I just let whatever comes onto the paper so it’s more intuitive painting. I don’t have access to the art I love because I don’t readily or often have money to visit galleries and my local area seems to show contemporary or modern art. I think art can be whatever you want it to be; imaginative, interesting, soulful, expressive, ordinary but also strange. It doesn’t always have to make sense and it can be as colourful as you want, I think people forget to play with paint.
