If you decided to make a dartboard in the shape of Britain then my hometown of Sutton-In-Ashfield would be somewhere lurking within the bullseye bit. Deep in the heart of the East Midlands is where my humble journey started. I continued on through Brighton to study illustration for three years before ending up in the big smoke they call London to complete an M.A. course at Central Saint Martins College. Work slowly followed for such editorials as Time Out, Sunday Times Magazine & The Guardian before a young agency called Dutch Uncle took me under their wing in the summer of 2005.
My style is divided into two parts. The painted pieces that played a key part in my early development as an artist/illustrator & the more fine line pen approach that now forms most of my commission requests.
My influences range from Peter Blake, David Hockney, Euan Uglow, Ruskin Spear, Robert Rauschenberg, photographers such as Lee Friedlander, Saul Leiter, Tony Ray-Jones & also graphic artists such as Saul Bass & the Blue Note sleeves.
