2014-16 MA Illustration. Manchester Metropolitan University
1996-99 BA (Hons) Graphic Design/Illustration. Liverpool John Moores University
I began my artist career as a young boy, drawing constantly and writing and illustrating my own comics. I began my formal training at the local art school. I was then accepted at university art school, after this I was then taken on by an illustration agent, and for the next 2 years I produced illustrations for a wide variety of national and international clients. I then found a wife and was guided into retraining. I was a qualified psychiatric nurse for 9 years including my training. My life then took another turn, as it tends to do, and I found myself on my own again. I returned to university in 2014, and upon leaving, I began specialising in illustration.
Why Choose Me?
I love to create, and I am constantly striving for quality. I treat every new piece of work with respect and vigour, I aim to please, and strive for perfection. Commissioning me means total commitment, I am extremely reliable, if I commit to a deadline that deadline will always be met. I posses vast experience of illustrating professionally to brief. I am the consummate professional. I have a number of styles and my work can be used in multiple settings. I paint and draw with both traditional media, and also all the new digital media at my disposal, or an accumulation of the two. What ever the brief is I can accommodate it, from publishing to advertising. I am a member of the Association of Illustrators, and I seek guidance through them regarding the professionalism of Illustration, and how to conduct myself. I have spent many years honing and perfecting my talents and my style. My style is based upon traditional skills and techniques, and supplemented by new technologies. I can draw and paint anything. If you cannot see it in my portfolio that just means I haven’t done it yet. I posses an unlimited imagination and can visualise anything you desire.
