 Hi and thanks for checking out my art work, or some of it at least. I am a self taught artist and ive created this site in an attempt to get my work out to the world mainly as a portfolio but also i feel it is the nicest way to show my work.

 

 I have added a selection of the different mediums that i like to work in but there are many more that i also enjoy such as graphite, oil paint, fine liner and water colours. My current addiction is sculpting and ive been doing it for around 4 years now. I love the hands on feel of making a finished sculpture and enjoy the challenge of a commission piece.

 

 I have been working in the graphic design industry now for nearly 10 years and feel i have good skills in digital illustration, i have only posted a handful of vector images as the majority of my work contractually does not belong to me so i cant show it on my site. Although examples of my work can be shown on request.

 

 My ultimate dream in life is to get the chance to work at a film studio as a creature designer / sculptor or have a very creative job. I am actively seeking that magical opportunity, until then, i will just keep on practicing.

I have had training from Jordu Schell and Don Lanning, both are leaders in their art and are known for a very impressive portfolio of Hollywood films. 

 

Thanks again for looking.....enjoy
