Matt Faulkner was born in London in 1977 and after school qualified as a Financial Adviser. After a number of very successful years working in the city Faulkner decided to follow his dream, and open a recording studio in London's famous 'TinPan Alley'. Over the years the studio hosted a wealth of artists including, Adam Ant and rock band Million Dead. In 2002, Matt relocated from London to South Wales. The power of the surrounding countryside inspired Matt to pick up the brush for the first time in 10 years and he began to paint a series of works inspired by the horizon. Art and music have always played a huge part in Matt's life, "I find that the two creative outlets compliment each other as a cathartic release and as a lifestyle away from the rat-race." he says, adding when, "I aren't making a mess with paints, I am usually making a noise in the studio."
