My Story.


Thanks for taking the time out of your day to look at my site.

In brief, on the 29.09.19 I decided to become permanently alcohol free. Since that day so many things have happened. 

1. I started my own Art business - @thesoberpainter and began painting artwork naming each abstract piece after the day of sobriety. 

2. I found out that I didn't need to spend all that money to make me feel confident.

3. I started an incredible journey that would end in a Autism diagnosis, me free of debt and making my paintings into clothes! 

I wanted to give something back, so I'm dedicating 10% of my new clothing range @1YSBR to Alcohol Change UK there's loads of interesting stuff on there if you also think you may have a challenging relationship with the sauce. 

A highlight of my first sober year, was being selected to exhibit at Pride in London's first "Queer Contemporary" Art exhibition. Fifty Two artists were selected to exhibit at an exhibition of the same name, curated by a panel of celebs and drag royalty, turned art activist @DustyO  check it out here.

Please email if you wish to collaborate or you need someone to talk too, I'm very open to commissions, coffee, chats and more importantly, I want to tell you, you are not on your own. 

Thanks for reading
