"I’ve always been interested in art and have a great love for the old masters; Rembrandt, Turner and Caravaggio, amazing Artists on wonderful journeys. Through travel I have found a new universe of potential, from sunsets and landscapes of Australia to the dramatic mountain ranges of the French Alps, nature inspires. Art is everywhere and a painting at every turn.

 

Painting a picture requires time and energy, thought and vision. A painting highlights the feeling and atmosphere of a scene, the world is an interpretation of what's seen through the eyes of an individual, making art purely unique to the artist who had the thought to create it."

"Skateboarding is part of my soul and always will be, I have a deep understanding of the sport and how difficult it is to become one of the elite."

Skateboarding is an action sport which involves riding and performing tricks using a skateboard. Skateboarding can also be considered a recreational activity, an art form, a profession, or a method of transportation. Skateboarding has been shaped and influenced by many skateboarders throughout the years. A 2002 report found that there were 18.5 million skateboarders in the world.

The ollie was adapted to flat ground by Rodney Mullen in 1982. Mullen also invented the "Magic Flip," which was later renamed the Kickflip, as well many other tricks including, the 360 flip, which is a 360 pop shove it and a kickflip in the same motion. The flat ground ollie allowed skateboarders to perform tricks in mid-air without any more equipment than the skateboard itself, it has formed the basis of many street skating tricks. Skateboarding is a way of life for many skaters.
