Well, what to say? Hmmm..|
I live here on the outskirts of Sheffield (one of the greener cities on offer in the UK) and have lived in the general area all of my life. I've had a fascination with art all my life. Though it may have taken a back seat on several occasions for other expressive avenues such as writing or playing guitar in local bands, it's never been too far from my mind. I tend to feel that I have the greatest creative success when I leap between disciplines, but lately my drawing has been all-consuming due to a restless imagination which in turn was prompted by experimentation using Artrage.
Work-wise, I have held a few different jobs – music sales, data input.. anything which could make ends meet, but with exception to the music they seem always to have been frustratingly polar to my artistic interests, which lie at the very heart of who I am. Take where I am at the moment.. I'm currently employed as an IT Technician in education, but like Clark Kent, Peter Parker or Bruce Wayne, that is merely the day job. With a little delicate juggling towards my creativity, and a combination of perseverance and wishful thinking I am hopefully taking my first steps toward a new career.

Thank you! (there.. all quite painless and polite, I thought..
