I started painting and exhibiting my work
about 15 years ago before I became a stockbroker.
Being dedicated to my art generally kept
me quite poor. I worked part time to support
my art habit. During this time I was also
trading shares which I was quite good at.
Unfortunately I never had big funds behind
me so I was only making a lot of small wins.
When I started working for Credit Suisse
First Boston I was well and truly over being
the poor artist. During the last 6 years
that I worked as a stockbroker I was able
to acquire some property and more shares.
I left stockbroking in February to go back
to art. I guess I am a glutton for punishment.
inspiration I tend to think of Jeff Koons
who was a commodities trader which is similar
but different to stockbroking.
