Short Bio.

I had a brain haemorrhage aged 14 in 1978 which left me half paralysed -and the name 'Billybraindamage' as a then wild child- art was my talent but then my drawing hand changed from my right to left hand and had to relearn a lot of things and had a new perspective on life. I do art 24/7 carrying notebooks around drawing and painting life as it goes through my head. My home is my studio at the moment and I attend classes at SLAM and Cooltan Arts but searching for a new place to continue firing and making ceramics. I've always lived in South-east London and I studied at Camberwell College of Arts in the 80s/90s after encouragement from my then girlfriend. I have joined Outside In as want to show my work to more people, more often and to represent myself. http://billywestonart.com

Hi Ingrid, I sometimes sketch out my ideas for paintings in sketchbooks and sometimes I doodle patterns and designs from my imagination - I take the pen wherever my mind goes and it just flows out like water from a tap; I finish a page and move onto the next - sometimes I draw continuously for hours. Drawing in pen it flows more fluidly and if I paint with a brush it requires more concentration.

Do you plan your work in advance? It seems to be a lot "stream of consciousness", i.e. it just flows out of you. I like it a lot.
