About his art:

His multi-layered paintings take imagery from old country music publicity photos and sheet music and envelope them in a haze of ironic nostalgia. A respected visual artist he is best known for his striking portraits of country music icons including Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley.

He describes his painting technique thusly: “Long process of layering, scraping, minute attention to detail. Basically, I create a very unstable surface with acrylics and pastel on top of each other and work on top of that with Sharpies, felt pens, white out, gunk, snot and whatever comes to hand.”

    hello Jon

    I enjoyed the Windmill gig last night; nice to have some of those early punk things played – last one I saw was at the Luminaire a few years ago – it prompted the thought that you might be sympathetic to my ‘Cover Versions’ painting project – it would be good if you could have a look, the best representation of it is on Facebook which I hope that you can access – i got a bit carried away and posted ( in the form of comments ) information and youtube links to each painting;

    failing that there are pictures on my website and also the record of a recent exhibition on flickr –
