Acrylic & Spraypaint on skate deck

Bio - I used to do a lot of pencil and ink drawings, mostly working on a small scale from my bedroom. My first experience of working on a larger scale was at club nights in Edinburgh with the Too Much Fun Club where we would do a lot of live murals. I did a wee bit of spray painting from time to time but found it really difficult as I was so used to working in a style that lent itself to detailed line work. 

This changed when I got a shared studio space down in Leith about 3 years ago which is when I really started to explore painting. I decided to not draw for an entire year and only paint and slowly started working out the layering process which really helped my spray painting to develop. The sudden introduction of colour into my work really took over my style and I'm always drawn towards the light in a painting. I've always been a huge fan of fantasy and Sci-Fi artwork from an early age and that still is where my heart lies today. It was seeing the Yardworks festival a few years back that inspired me to get into the painting - so really happy to be a part of it now.
