I spent my formative years immersed in Pirate Radio, Hammer Horror and Sci Fi. I studied a BA in Fine Art and developed a passion for sketchbooks and getting my hands dirty. After a couple of years of working on canvas, I began teaching Art & Design at schools and colleges. Four years later i found myself looking to rediscover my own craft and enrolled in an MA in Design and Art Direction at Manchester Metropolitan. It was here that I began my affair silk screen printing and digital artwork. Juxtaposing my analog skills with my digital experiments, I explored combinations of technique and technology within my understanding of visual language. Finishing the course I, I continued to draw, paint, and print into a freelance career. Whilst art directing a series of high profile club events, I extended my illustration output into working with record labels, artists, and the music press. Having a completed a two year spell freelancing and lecturing in Sydney, I have returned to my cultural and spiritual home of Manchester. Ensconced once more in the rainy capital, I continue illustrate for the music industry, co-manage a boutique illustrative home ware business in Australia and lecture at Salford University. My influences are drawn my environment, a love of graphic novels and portraiture. Marking making and experimental gestures continue to fascinate me and influence my practice.
