I've always done both, paint and act. As a kid I expected that one
would eventually win out - this hasn't happened.
Although I spend the majority of my energy painting, performance and now, filmmaking provides a
balance that I need in my life. As I told Sisi Peñaloza for her NOW magazine
article, I'm "way too much of an extrovert to be just a painter, and way
too much of an introvert to be just an actor".
Here are some of my favourite projects with which I've been involved.
