In 2017, my partner and I decided to give up our day jobs so that we could live anywhere and spend our days doing what we love. I went to university in 2004, which has enabled me to make ends meet through private tutoring, but my art techniques are all self-found.

My name is Jay and I appreciate things which are… odd, surreal… a bit strange and unusual.

I read when I can, favouring short stories and weird fiction.

I was born in the south of England in 1986. Drawing and painting leaves me with an odd combination of feeling calm and excited.

Chance operations play a key role in the creation of my drawings and paintings. Pens are my favourite tools for drawing, but I occasionally paint and collage too.

The composer John Cage also brings me great creative comfort and I enjoy reading about his methods.

  1. Hi Jay, thanks for visiting the Chickens Consigliere. This is one of the most unique blogs I’ve visited. Then again, you know that, don’t you Oddspecs:-) I’m off to explore a little more of what you’re up to. Thanks again.
