This rich history working in the creative industry provides Blakely with a strong understanding for art and the creating process. Blakely has expressed how ever-changing his work as progressed as a painter, saying “I have completely changed the way I paint over decades. In fact, I am proud, not conceited, to write that I now paint in a way that I would have thought impossible twenty, thirty years ago.”
