I'm a self taught full time artist. I also give workshops and produce instructional painting videos which you can see here: http://www.livepaintinglessons.com
I live next to the beach in Ruakaka, Northland, New Zealand with Helen my wife who is a nurse and our 2 young kids Danielle and Luke.
I trained in graphic design and worked in the industry for 3 years before making the leap to full time painting in 2001.
