Hi I’m Sean and I was born in the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare, England. My life as an artist began when I was just 8 years old after submitting a drawing of Scooby-Doo in the school’s art competition and receiving first place.
After obtaining a BA in Illustration from Falmouth University in 2006, I worked as a Children’s Book Illustrator for several independent writers as well as working as a commissional artist which included detailed pencil drawings of pets, family members, cars, and much more. I love to create abstract paintings, I also love to paint wildlife. I enjoy combining the two themes to incorporate the subject within the background and introduce the space and freedom the subject deserves.
“My desire to create flows naturally where I interpret my own experiences of the subject, rather than creating a perfect imitation. The process allows me to feel connected, open-minded, thankful, and honest”.
I enjoy working with texture and contrast. My inspiration comes from daily life and objects around me; a cast shadow onto a wall, the texture of a cliff, or the light and dark colours in trees.
I work with layers of acrylic paint to create depth and interest with my abstract paintings. I uses a series of tools such as knives, brushes, cards, and sponges. I also like to dabble with oil paint, especially if there’s an animal involved.
I currently reside in Athens, Greece, and I work as a designer and a primary school teacher of Art.
