Minimalism is Beautiful
Hi there, Welcome to my blog. It’s about time I finally set up a proper, fully-fledged portfolio website for my clients, friends and other artists who follow my work. It’s amazing what can be done online these days in terms of web development – the options and professionalism available are simply astounding. I hope you enjoy browsing the site, and be sure to check back often for blog updates. I’ve tried to keep things simple and easy to navigate, so load times are low, and you can focus on the art. I have so much planned – those who know me know that my mind never rests, so look forward to some exciting developments from me in the art world. Thanks for reading, and speak soon, Scott
