Work­ing as an art di­rec­tor, a lot of the time I only have a few hours at my desk to ex­e­cute an idea. So I’ve cre­ated a habit of be­ing very clear with the con­cept be­fore I be­gin to paint. I usu­ally do quick, loose thumb­nails and ex­plore rough colour ideas be­fore I start on a piece. There’s noth­ing worse for me than to have in­vested the time and en­ergy in a paint­ing and not be happy with the con­cept, com­po­si­tion or light­ing idea later on down the road.”

Be­ing so busy has taught me to be very ef­fi­cient with the time that I have to work
