I’ve been interested in astronomy and space since I was a kid, marvelling at the art I saw in books and magazines about space, spaceflight and space exploration. I read everything I could get my hands on.
Perhaps one day I would go.
Now I do. Little did I know that I would become a space artist myself and inspire new generations to explore space. It turns out I am what I have termed a “method painter”, putting myself in the moment; in the place that I am painting in order to more richly convey the essence of what it’s like to be in space. Not only how it looks but how it feels.
