I have been painting on and off for about eight years, have won a few regional competitions when i use to live in Nottingham and i have made the finals of the last 8 GDUK competitions. Only this past two years that i have started to really develop as a painter and get more involved in the painting community where i have made friends with lots of cool people.
I have started my own blog http://figurementors.com/ and I have started a Patreon page where I share my knowledge with those who wish to become better painters https://www.patreon.com/user?u=3697066.
2015 and 2016 were good for me on the competition front winning award in Master Fantasy at Athens, Folkestone, Paris, SMC and others. 2017 will be a good year and I have started to develop a passion for historical figures too :D
