I have worked as a professional illustrator since 1993, originally specialising in wildlife subjects using a variety of traditional techniques and media.
Over the years I've moved to computer generated modelling and now work almost entirely using digital media in 2D and 3D, illustrating a wide range of scientific, technical and historical subjects. Using the latest 3D modelling,sculpting and painting programmes, images can be produced quickly and with a large amount of flexibility.
I spent some of my childhood in New Zealand surrounded by unspoiled volcanic landscapes,woodland and coastlines,where my love of nature and wildlife was first developed.
Now living in the UK, on the Suffolk/Norfolk border in the midst of the Waveney Valley, with my wife, two cats, and various guitars, including a 1964 vintage Gibson, which feed a passion for the Blues.
Before becoming a professional artist, I worked for the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food as an Assistant Scientific Officer. This background in biology proved invaluable in my future career as an illustrator.
Recent work has been for the publishing market, mainly magazines and books, with an emphasis on wildlife,technical and historic illustration.
In 2012 I won the Association of Illustrators Silver Award for Design.
