I am a professional graphic artist with 24 years experience, having started my career as an airbrush artist in 1988. I worked as part of a team creating large murals for outdoor advertising and display sets. I began using digital tools commercially in the early 1990s, first of all on the Apple Mac and then onto the PC. At this time I also began to create 3D models and visuals for concept art and illustration. My skills are diverse and I have experience of the following: Concept art, illustration, product design, packaging design, graphic design, logo design, 3D modelling, digital design and Flash animation. My work manifests itself in a range of styles, which I feel is one of my strengths - I can adapt to various projects with ease. I also write comedy and use the ideas as a springboard for cartoons and comic art, something that I have a passion for.
