My Grandad, Albert Shave, was my best teacher. I have never known not to have art in my life because of him and I started drawing at a very early age. He taught me the techniques of tone, perspective, colour, and so much more when I was as young as 7 years old - and he was an inspiration to me. I studied G.C.S.E and A level art but then went on to study computer science. I then made a career merging the two mediums through graphic design, webdesign and layout. I have also taken part in several courses locally to develop my art further including courses in Acrylics, figure drawing, creative writing and several others.
I think the best teaching is experience, experimentation and passion.
