Thank you so much, so carefully packaged to survive the journey! Will make a really special Christmas present.
Paint, paint, paint.
In the summer between Upper Fifth and Lower Sixth I discovered a passion for drawing. I loved the work of Boris and started to create work inspired by his style but it was when I saw the work of Alan Lee I knew that this was something that I wanted to do with my life.
I was very fortunate to study Illustration at the North East Wales Institute in Wrexham under the tutelage of renown Welsh artist Keith Bowen. I learnt a great deal about the process of illustration and modelled for Keith's depiction of William Salesbury translator of the New Testament into Welsh on a Royal Mail stamp. Keith was a good friend of Alan Lee and I was lucky enough to undertake my final project under his supervision: an illustration for The Mermaid.
Since leaving College I have worked professionally. I designed the 1998 first American edition of the award winning Settlers of Catan. I have also worked on the award winning Parthenon and Tigris Euphrates board games.
I have produced Tolkien pictures which have been published by Iron Crown and Harper Collins and have been exhibited at The Festival in the Shire in Mid Wales, Images of Middle Earth in the Castle Saint Angelo in Rome and other European venues and the Greisinger Museum in Switzerland
I currently freelance for Osprey Publishing creating meticulously detailed historical illustrations for their titles. I also work on commissions. I recently designed a pair of wedding rings and have created unique illustrations to mark family celebrations. Please get in touch if you have an idea you'd like to see illustrated.
All the best,
