My journey so far in this mad world...

I was born and raised in the West Midlands and spent all of my younger years copying favourite sci-fi book covers by the light of the calor gas heater. When I was finally proclaimed an adult I pursued an art education at Stourbridge College of Art and Design and in the late 80's that led to a long career in graphic design. Many eventful years later I opened a fine art gallery showcasing Black Country artists which not only refocussed my own art but opened up the door to teaching what I loved.

I work in many mediums including Acrylic, Oils, Watercolour, pencils and digital looking to a wide array of subject matter… everything from fairy's to dragons and landscapes to portraits. I want to paint the world both as I see it and at times how I wish it were, and that is how I teach it.

I am a successfully published artist with clients including Iron Crown Enterprises and Pyramid Posters. I have had work published in ImagineFX and produced a number of science fiction and fantasy book cover illustrations for UK and international authors and publishers.

I teach traditional arts to adults in the community and alongside this I work on private commissions and commercial freelance projects from my busy studio in the West Midlands. If you would like to join the growing network of people that support my courses and personal project World War Fae then why not become a patron of my art over on my Patreon page.

My Etsy store has finally come to be a reality in this year that we have all come to know as 'Lockdown' and I intend bringing more work to a wider audience in this brave new world!

    I was born and raised in the Midlands here in the UK and I have worked commercially as an artist now for over 15 years. I love to paint most things and I get a great deal of pleasure from teaching adults in the local community.
