I'm probably better known as one of the UK's leading 2D Animators who's work has appeared in countless TV commercials and many of the best loved Children's TV Series of the last few decades including "William's Wish Wellingtons", "Angelmouse", "The Forgotten Toys", "Philbert the Frog", "Muffin the Mule" and "The Raggy Dolls" to name but a few.

There should be a space on a wall of every room of every home for a small piece of original hand made art. We have become swamped by mass produced posters and have forgotten the tactile, emotional reaction we get from viewing unique hand produced artwork with a direct connection to the artist.

The Ukiyo-e Woodblock Print artist Kuniyoshi stated that his prints were designed to be affordable to everyone, priced at a little more than a couple of bowls of Soba noodles. So, following Kuniyoshi's democratic ideals, which mirror my own desire to enable children to afford to own original art, the prints I produce are designed and priced to be highly affordable to everyone.
