I’ve been painting forever.

What inspires you?
Music, films and ancient mythology.

Does music ever inspire your paintings?
Most of my paintings are like little songs and are titled like songs. I guess I realised I couldn’t sing so I paint instead.

It’s a word that other people use to try to explain what I do.

What’s the first thing you reach for in the morning?

I’ve become a bit of a recluse I don’t get out much.
