About me

Gender MALE
Industry Arts
Occupation artist and artisan
Location Camacari, Bahia, Brazil
Introduction My family for a couple of generations have worked with wood and before this were ceramic artists, I grew up in an environment of everything that you needed can be made. This creates skills that are not ever lost and a mind that is forever forward thinking. My art training was in illustration and early work (12 years) was has a scene painter and special effects, I now paint for relaxation but my families background in cabinet making and architecture have given me the other trade of furniture builder and restorer which I have followed for the last 30 years. I moved to Brazil in 2003, but have also a home in Saint Puy, Gers, France, so my time is evenly split between both countries to work has a furniture restorer/maker and artist/artisan.
Interests interests are generally visual and practical.
Favorite Movies I like films and can be quite general in my tastes although any film that as an intriguing story line along with some outstanding photography are the ones that I will go for.
Favorite Music Music is probably a more difficult subject for me, I like opera but also any music that fills a mood or harmonises with the nature of the day and the thoughts that may be passing inside my head
Favorite Books I am not much of a book reader, however when time allows I do like to read what ever comes to hand.
