I am a 50 year old man. I work part-time at a job which allows me the luxury of drawing whilst working. I attend a local centre, The Cornerhouse in Southwick, where their art tutor has introduced me to photographing my work. Subsequently I won an NHS Partnership Positive image competition. I have just competed the designs for sixteen AO panels which will go up next year in Adur. My work involves detailed line drawings which I then digitally photograph, adding coloured layers to build the image. Sometimes I will then paint the picture and rephotograph it so that I have many versions to work on digitally. Once satisfied with the image I take an A3 print of the work to mount and perhaps sell. My frequent walks and love of books and photography have allowed me to absorb many different influences from my local area. I hope my pictures are a cross between classical drawing and the latest computer photo-editing techniques.
