I'm an artist and illustrator living in Brighton. 

 

As a child, growing up in Yorkshire, my grandad was a big influence in my early interest in drawing and painting. Being a keen amateur wildlife artist and cartoonist, he helped to inspire my love of nature and the arts.

 

I would eventually go onto to follow my passion in nature and study Wildlife Illustration at Carmarthen College of Arts and Technology, Wales in 1989 - 91.

 

Illustration did take a back seat for a few years as I pursued a career as Graphic Designer, working in TV and Video Games. 

I now work in education as a Cover Supervisor in a special needs school in Brighton.

In 2012 my work was accepted in the New Talent section of the Association of Illustrators publication, ‘Images 36’. It’s Britain's only jury-selected illustration competition and has very stringent criteria for submission.

 

On the 1st January 2013 I started working on a self-initiated project called, ‘One Sketch A Day’, which lasted for six years, drawing every day until stopping on the 31st Decemeber 2018 to take a year off and persue other creative projects. The subjects ranged from the bizarre to the mundane. The illustrations were inspired by anything from a conversation, a snapshot of stranger on a bus, a fly sitting on a car bonnet or a current affairs news story.  

My sketches are a visual diary, which depict a somewhat distorted and humorous view of life around me.
