Sean was born in the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare, England. His life as an artist began when he 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, Sean 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.
Sean loves to create abstract paintings, he also loves to paint wildlife. He enjoys 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”.
Sean enjoys working with texture and contrast. His inspiration comes from daily life and objects around him; a cast shadow onto a wall, the texture of a cliff, or the light and dark colours in trees.
Sean works with layers of acrylic paint to create depth and interest with his abstract paintings. He uses a series of tools such as knives, brushes, cards, and sponges. He also likes to dabble with oil paint, especially if there’s an animal involved.
Sean lives in Athens, Greece, and works as a designer and a primary school teacher of Art and English.
