20/07/2017 Simon Collins & Zoidiva As you all know, I enjoy concept art as well as drawing and painting. So I wanted to share this with you, it's my concept art I designed for wonderful talented Zoidiva and Simon Collins (Phil Collins talented son). It was for their upcoming project called 'Eden Return'. Zoidiva Penyez Lore and Simon Collins, thank you for acknowledging and appreciating my work I've had great fun. My original painting is called 'Abide' in digital oil and I'll post the story behind it all soon.
13/3/2015 For musician Phil Gould. Slightly back tracking. In December 2014 I decided to surprise Phil Gould (Drummer and Musician of Level 42), with a mini sketch (below). It received thousands of responses from my Facebook fan page, Phil and all his followers combined. Since then Phil has used the image for his Twitter profile,which is just fantastic. Thank you to one of the most talented people out there.
12/3/2015 Things Happen for a reason After my car accident on 19th Jan, I'm happy to say I've resumed back to the pleasures of painting and singing. I'm delighted to be rehearsing with The BMGMA (Bazil Meade Gospel Music Academy) for our next performance on stage in St Albans on the 26th March '15 and for the Mayor's Ball this May. I feel more electric and excited than I ever did before. My senses have heightened. My next abstracts will be coming soon.

16/12/2014 Meeting Mike Lindup (Level42) Few weeks ago, I visited the National Gallery in London for a private viewing of The Rembrandt collection all thanks to Chris Lowe of Marsh. Last week I met Phil Gould again and watched one of the best bands in my life play live at the 606 Jazz Club in Chelsea London this is where I met legend Mike Lindup. Many times I painted portraits listening to Mike and the band on the stereo. Thank you guys for an unforgettable night.

22/10/2014 A Way In Music I'm picturing myself now it's 1985 I'm watching TOTPs moving forward to 1989 (I was 11yrs old) my brother's playing Level 42 from his pioneer stack, and I'm sketching a picture of the band which I posted to their fan club before heading for school.
(I also wrote to Phil Collins and Genesis). Two years ago I sat listening to Phil Gould's album 'Watertight' and song 'Area 51 Revisited' I had to find out more. After several telephone conversations over several years (he's such a cool guy), we met. I've always been a huge fan and it's lovely to get moments like this to chat and even get asked to join him on stage - which, is an honour in many great ways. And I couldn't find a better way to spend my Friday night in London with Bongo Saloon, with Phil Gould former Level42 drummer and co-founder of Level42. Hugely talented and such an inspiration. BTW, Phil and band members smashed it. Amazing night. It's moments like this that really get me inspired. I know I'll be infusing their grooves in my work. Thank you Phil.
