Tell us a bit about yourself?
I was born in 1965 in Sheffield and have always enjoyed drawing for as long as I can remember. Art was my favourite subject at school but once I left I took it no further
In the late 80’s I managed to get a job as a cartoonist, working on Pre-school comics,
Drawing every day improved my skills, and after a few years I moved on to work at a computer games company as an animator and games designer.
It was there I began sculpting reference figures for 3D animation.
This would ultimately lead to becoming a freelance sculptor, sculpting anything from Dragons to teddies, animals to action figures.
Years past and sculpting work was getting harder to come by, so I had to turn my back on art and took a job as a painter and decorator.
Maybe it was using brushes everyday that got me itching to try my hand oil painting, once I started I was very lucky that people liked what they saw.
I began to paint seriously from that point and local galleries started to sell my work, now I can’t imagine doing anything else.
