Welcome to my ePortfolio!
My name is Brett and I’d like to welcome you to my ePortfolio where I wish to share with you some of my artwork. But first I suppose I should say something about myself.
Who am I?
I’m a child of the 60’s, only just though. I consider myself a humanist/neo-goth with neo-maxist socialist undertones, with interests in the arts and sciences. Although I consider myself a spiritualist by nature, I am in religious terms, an atheist and proud of it. I am a social scientist with a Bachelor Social Science and Social Work.
Where am I going?
My life appears to be one of “reinvention”, which I suspect is becoming the norm for most of us these days. But I am learning to embrace the changes that have been occurring in my life as it has allowed me to grow as a person, and professionally as a social worker and as such, there will, no doubt be more changes to come.
For as long as I can remember, I have always liked to draw or occasionally even paint, and do other crafty things such as building models. Although I still build models, these are the plastic kit models. I haven’t scatch built anything for a very long time. In fact, it’s been a while since I’ve actually done anything, well no that’s not quite right, it’s been a while since I’ve completed anything. For a number of years now I’ve had difficulty in sitting down to do anything. It’s as if I have “stage fright”, which is very anoying at times, as the act of creating something artistic is a rewarding one. But it is an issue that I am slowing working to overcome, so please watch this space.
Most of my art posted here reflects some of those interests, which includes aircraft, ships, and dinosaurs just to name a few. I have also posted a few of my assignments from previous art courses as I have attempted at various times as I had an ambition to become a professional artist, a commercial or technical illustrator and so my work tends to reflect that. I have always had a fascination realistic paintings and technical drawings, as I have a passion for history and the sciences. And as I was illerate until the age of 15, what I learnt of life, the universe and everything, were through looking at pictures. So I have always wanted to be a realist artist and will more than likely continue along those lines as that’s where my interest lie.
My art is for me, but I hope you enjoy what I have done…
