My contract clearly stated that I couldn't take a break from painting!

I was locked up to the boom lift and whipped daily being shouted commands to paint!

I was only allowed 1-hour per day to rest and eat.

building up the fluidity and excited movement of the backgrounds.


Miami, U.S.A.



Knowing which dancer I was going to paint on top of each section
I could customize the backgrounds to each dancers body language and movements.

FUN,FUN, FUN!!!

my aim was to have a balance of jovial and fluid movements of colourful backgrounds that complimented each specific dancer.
The balance of infusing a loose background with a precise foreground of each dancer was a blend of pushing and pulling.

'Camille' process

Face process


Miami, U.S.A.



The style of painting all of these dancers is composed up one individual spray dot at a time.
literally dot by dot each dancer comes to life.

I'm not sure exactly how many dots are in this painting but I lost count after 8,642 dots whilst painting Camille.

I appreciate the small details in life.

It might seem a bit insane but I enjoy building these paintings up dot by dot

I reckon there must be some 10,000+ dots in the whole painting.

Imagine giving each dot a number and then connecting them all to make the painting.

There is a positive and negative aspect of this photo.

Negative effect: It looks like I'm tying to cop a feel and appear to be in a compromising position.

Positive effect: This photo does a great job of showing the large scale of the painting.

Preparing the background for my next dancer; Vikki.


Miami, U.S.A.



I met Vikki at a strip club in the United states.

Vikki had a routine where she opened up her set with this top hat and cane costume.

I asked her to be a model for me and the rest is history.
