What kind of accomplishments have you done in the artworld? I am an associate member of "The Society of Feline Artists" based in England. I have had two successful one-man exhibitions in the last 2 years.

Have you won any awards for your artwork? No, but then again I haven't entered anything!!!

Why the interest in cats and other animal paintings? I have a stronger bond (generally speaking) with animals rather than people. Also my wife, Beverley, owns & runs a dog rescue in Manchester, England.

How many years have you been pursuing art? Only 4 - 5 years.

How old are you? 36 years "young".

Has anyone been a particular inspiration to you in pursuing art? Two main inspirations:
1)Beverley, and my Mum & Dad.
2) My animals: 5 dogs/16 cats/1 rabbit/1 hamster/1 mouse.

Do you do this full time? I am trying to succeed at it full time.

What are your goals for your artwork? To have a recognised style. To be a household name (like Lesley-Anne Ivory or Coca-Cola). Obviously, the money would come in handy too!

Did you ever have any formal training in art? Yes, when I was 18 - 19 years old. I then left the artworld completely and became a retail store manager for Boots the Chemist, Virgin Records, HMV Record Shops & Safeway.

What are the two most compelling reasons someone would want to visit your website? It is a must because:
1). It best shows the many styles and subjects of my work. There is something there for everyone.
2). People could meet my "animal family".
