Our Support Workers do amazing things!
Daniel Pincham-Phipps used to fill boxes twelve hours a day in a Southend factory and collects vintage motorcycles. He now works for Consensus at Southwold House, Leigh on Sea as a Support Worker.
Daniel is an accomplished artist who is well known in some quarters and has sold many pieces with Critic Brian Sewell and Martin Clunes amongst his list of clients. Daniel is a regular exhibitor including at the ‘Stuckist’ Turner Prize Demonstrations.
Once we became aware of Daniel’s amazing talent we asked him if he would paint our Home and we are extremely delighted with what he has created and gifted to us!
Daniel has lived in Leigh-on-Sea all his life saying “The light on the Thames estuary is incredible – it easily surpasses the light of France.” He used to circuit-race Aermacchi-Harley Davidson and Yamaha motorcycles in Brands Hatch and had to stop after 130 m.p.h. crash. He was also a cartoonist for The Beano and Dandy.
Daniel said “The gift of art was always there, but good teachers bring it out to enable you to explore it and yourself. I do studies all the time, even just sitting in a train station – sketch books, bits of paper, anything. I change things during a painting all the time. I’m not afraid of destroying a good painting in the process of exploration.”
