Involved in the art world for too many years to recall, a prolific illustrator with a keen eye for detail, my graphite and brushed-on pastel representations of pets and other animals are well worth a look-see. Not that it ends with the animal world; I indeed illustrate anything asked of me, from the sublime to the ridiculous, all accomplished with limitless gusto. Specialising also in cartooning, I have produced strip work, full page and double page comic art for such publications as Match, Goalmouth, Soccer Stars...and The Christchurch News! Proficient in Fan Art, producing accurate representations of the famous, I am also a consummate creator of comic portraiture, a recipient portrayed in whatever guise. An illustrator of books for children, I produce them in coloured pencils and inks, gouache, acrylic and watercolour. My trade learned the old way - at a drawing board with set-squares and a T-square - I still employ the style today in plying my trade. Diversely, with two completed offerings under my belt (and a billion and one ideas for further workings swimming around the old think tank!), though thus far unpublished I write novels. This said, as I've had to do for myself, doing so adequately I am no slouch as a proof reader.
