I am a self-taught artist. I paint in acrylics and oils and create prints from wood engravings. My main goal in my art is to inspire thought and if I can’t do that, I’ll go for a smile. The Lego man probably does the latter. This is more than a painting of a toy, it is a portrait of an old friend. I think that large format photorealism captures the personality we always knew existed in the toy.
