On 21st January 2021 at 18:55, I had an interview with Ronald Clark on Chat And Spin Radio (an online radio station with 75,000 listeners). It’s only the 2nd radio interview that I’ve ever done and I was a bit nervous, but when I got talking about my passion for art, all those nerves slipped away.
I talked freely about my favourite art styles, subjects and some of the things that influence my art, as well as the positive uplifting effect that painting/drawing can have on mental health (which is especially important during these lockdowns). 20-25 years ago when I first started drawing as an illustrator/cartoonist, I never would have imagined that one day, people would collect my work in different countries.
I might be doing another radio interview in March 2021. I love talking about art. I live art every day. When I go for my walks into the country and alongside rivers, and when I think back to holidays along the coast – there’s influence everywhere. To make your mark in life and on a canvas you just have to take the plunge, without any certainty or guarantees of how things will turn up. Life in general is no different than a painting – when you start you don’t always end up finishing as you would have imagined, but the results can often be better or a pleasant surprise.
