So what’s the story behind “SkrewArt” In my life I have only ever failed one exam “O level” Art, drawing a boring bowl of fruit just never did it for me so despite ambitions to become a graphic Artist I thought Screw Art I’m going to go down a different path. Many years later after 35 years in the corporate world I felt it was time to explore other avenues. A close friend gifted me some paints and an easel and gradually I was drawn back into the rewarding world of Art, exploring the use of colour and simple techniques to create vibrant art. I now have a small studio and a growing number of pieces of art that deserve to be on display somewhere other than a storage room. I paint what I like, this started out taking black & white pictures of music/film icons and bringing them to life and creating energy with abstract bursts of colour, moving forward I became fascinated by the intensity, spirit and zest that could be given to Face portraits again using colour and then I have explored how the movement and Flow of paint can combine to make simple abstract paintings with impact. So from all those years ago when I thought "screw art", I have now decided to see if SkrewArt can finally give me and maybe a few others just that little bit of joy.
Everyone has their heroes, icons from the silver screen, the music stage or just because they were so damn cool!
This is a view into some of my heroes and maybe one or two of yours.
