Based in United Kingdom
Ever since l can remember l have always had a pencil in my hand drawing every thing in sight. Gained entry to Manchester Regional College of Art on leaving school but left after a year when a position at a leading advertising agency was offered to me as an illustrator. I fell in love with Walt Disney films and decided that it was something that l would like to be involved in,any way that l could. Eventually a London art agent that was contracted to finding Disney artists for the Disneyland comic got me a freelance illustrating job working on the publication and l became a Recognised Disney Artist. This led to designing Disney Games from the Disney theme park rides for toy companies and then onto toys for worldwide companies. Hit Entertainment called me in to design character and vehicles for a new licence they where going to bring out called Bob the Builder . Since then l have worked on many well known licenses for the toy industry. Whenever time allowed l painted in watercolour or Acrylic on canvas or board and have exhibited at the London design centre and the Mall galleries. At present l work from home or at a large gallery in Knutsford Cheshire where they give me space amongst paintings from all over the world by leading artists. My subjects have changed over the years from still life to landscapes. I like to explore different techniques and styles ,sometimes l work quite small and and then other times l feel the need to paint large pictures where you can really let yourself go with brush and paint.
