An award winning illustrator with over thirty years experience.
I was born in Kent and my parents moved the family to St.Ives in Cornwall when I was two. A passion for drawing and painting followed, often inspired by movies and the work of 1970's and 80's book illustrators.
On leaving school I went on to study Technical Illustration at my local Art College, graduating in 1985.
Painting was not a major part of my course, but that was always where my main interest lay, and once I graduated I was lucky enough to be offered a studio space working with other illustrators and I was soon being represented by an illustration agent.
Since then, I've been happy painting all subjects and have worked with a range of clients from around the world, providing artwork for publishers, stamp designs, advertising campaigns, packaging, greetings card designs and much else.
I've received several major international Illustration awards and nominations for my children's book illustration.
Though continuing to enjoy painting many subjects, a life long love of history and detail are themes which have run through my work.
In 2000 I started working on a critically acclaimed series of books for Dorling Kindersley including the multi award winning 'A Street Through Time.' More recently I produced fourteen highly detailed spreads for 'The Bible in it's Time' (Lion Publishing) and have worked again with Dorling Kindersley on 'A Child Through Time.'
For twenty years I have been working with renowned military publishers, Osprey Publishing, providing paintings for over 50 books. I've gone on to sell many of these works to collectors around the world and have received a growing number of private commissions.
In light of this, I hope to find time to develop a number of ideas for my own paintings of historic military subjects.
I've also developed a longstanding working relationship with Warlord Games, illustrating many of their World War II armoured vehicles box artworks.
For the last twenty years I've lived in South Wales with my wife and three children.
