THE (driving) ARTIST IN ME……

19 A Subaru (2)This is probably NOT what you expect an artist to look like, but…..

I love motorbikes, karting and driving very fast cars and am very lucky that I can combine my passion for these pursuits with my passion for drawing and painting these types of machinery.

For me, being able to access (and drive) racing and rally, etc., cars has built up a real understanding of these machines, which I can bring to my paintings and illustration.   It is true that I literally cut my teeth on cars and motorbikes thanks to my late father.   This early experience actually furthered my interest in all things mechanical – making my life, to-day, a really interesting and exciting one.

Soon, I shall post up details of my forthcoming motoring artwork exhibition in Rennes.

I hope you enjoy my motoring artwork and welcome any enquiries.   Thank you.

I love motorbikes – and always have.   Futhermore, I loved my own bikes, rode them as fast as I dared, fell off, dusted myself off and immediately got back on again.   I suspect though, that a detailed x ray would show up some interesting cracks in my skeleton………..

This particular motoring artwork features the French Superbike Champion, Johann Zarco on the 2019 KTM.    This work has been executed in ink and pencil on A3 size paper.   For added effect, touches of red have been added to emphasise the work.  This is an original, signed artwork and will be exhibited (framed and mounted, under glass) at a motorsport venue in Rennes – of which, more anon.
