Hi, here’s a bit about myself and a glimpse into my precious little world.
I have been working from my studio on the Suffolk coast for several years.
I have always divided my professional life between being creative and a great love of Horticulture and plant lore. An enormous amount of my inspiration comes from my passion and respect for nature and also through a deep love and fascination with north west European Paganism. I feel tuned into the ancient beliefs of these cultures, their religion, healing, and especially the enchanted view they had of their lives and the environment, respecting all living things and worshipping all manner of deities and spirits which protected and inhabited their world. A world which I like to believe still exists today, but lies hidden and secret from the eyes of those who refuse to see it.
I have been working as an Artist/Illustrator and sculptor for a number of years. I have a B.A (hons) in design, and I am currently working towards an MA in Illustration.
I work in a range of media both traditional and digital and I am always striving to develop and improve my skills through practice, research and experimentation. My work ranges across a number of illustrative genres, all of which can be found in the portfolio’s section of my website. I only undertake commissions on the subjects I am most passionate about, simply because I want to achieve the very best results for my clients which means that a project must stir my imagination.
Aside from Illustration, I am also in the process of setting up the ‘Otherworld Studio’ which shall be selling fantasy inspired Artwork, sculptures and associated products.
When not in the studio, my life is blessed with so many interests. I cherish quality time spent with my wife Cheryl, my family and friends. History is one of my favourite subjects and I am currently developing my skills in learning to read and write in the Elder Futhark, the ancient runic language of the Anglo Saxons, Norse etc. My wife and I are passionate travellers who love to experience different cultures, cuisines, landscapes and different ways of living, especially amongst indigenous peoples. I can never find myself outdoors enough. I enjoy walking, kayaking and generally enjoying nature as much as possible. I love to read, and Movies especially from the 1980’s (It’s great to be retro!), and music of all types are also something I very much enjoy.
