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.
