At an early age I was heavily influenced by the fantastical imagery of Sir Arthur Rackham in Grimms Fairy Tales and the amazing album cover artwork in the early 70's by Roger Dean. The Pre-Raphaelites Rossetti and Arthur Hughes were also a huge inspiration. My art teachers really encouraged my style in the early years, showing my work in the entrance hall of the school, however they wanted to ground me in traditional techniques and I always felt "restrained" by their views of what art should look like. I went on to study at the Plymouth College of Art and Design (Reprographic Techniques) for several years before entering the Print Trade where I became a Graphic Designer for over 25 years. As the years went on, computers took on a more important role in the trade and this is where I got my love for all things digital. "I find it fascinating that I can virtually sculpt as you would with a natural medium like clay using programs such as Zbrush and Modo. With the immergence of 3d printers, this now takes us into a whole new realm of possibilities." I am currently a member of the Tiverton Art Society having won numerous awards, with the latest being the Society Summer Award and regularly exhibit at the Spring and Summer Exhibitions. I have exhibited locally and my work is in many private residences throughout the UK.
