OBJECTIVE: I fell in love with, and married a lovely American lady, so I now must seek any work whereby my skills and qualifications may apply.

Associates Degree in Art (Foundation). Arnold & Carlton College, Nottingham, England (1987-1989).


Concept Artist/Writer/Illustrator: Jagvar Art – Owner (2009 – present). I began drawing from the time I could hold a pencil, selling my first work of art at age 6. I continued to win art awards throughout my school years, eventually earning me the "Warlord" magazine award at age 10. From 1985 to 1987 I went on to illustrate advertisements for local Universities, and in 1989 established my own Greeting Card business Emjay Pencraft & Illustration. Throughout the 1990's I did freelance work for various magazine companies, including Dragon (TSR) and Warrior (International). Between 1992 and 1993 I did freelance work for Games Workshop (UK). At the start of the millennium I entered the magnificent world of computer gaming, doing concept art for Vertex Studios (Dubai) in 2009, and digital art for AppCrowd (UK) and Dark Space Corp. (UK) working alongside Golem Painting Studio (UK) in 2013. Website portfolio: http://jagvarart.yolasite.com/
