I studied technical illustration at the Arts University, Bournemouth, and have over 25 years experience creating both traditional and digital 3D illustration for publishing and advertising. I have worked in the US, Germany, China, and through my work for Lucasfilm I have been a guest at Star Wars conventions and book signings in Japan and across the US.
My clients have included Dorling Kindersley; Scholastic, Ladybird, Osprey Publishing; Haines; Mitchell Beazley; Readers Digest; Heinemann; Paragon Publishing and OSV (Germany) and campaigns for UTC, Sikorsky, Boeing, Hamilton Sundstrand Pratt & Whitney, Otis and NASA for DBB New York.
I am a Lucasfilm Licensed Artist and I have created publishing art work for Star Wars and Indiana Jones as well as DC Comics - Batman; Disney - Aladdin; Hasbro - Transformers; Sony - Stargate; Marvel Comics - S.H.E.I.L.D Avengers; Dreamwork’s Animation - Antz; Century 21 Productions - Captain Scarlett; BBC - Ivor the Engine and Sega Art.
I created feature film concept art on Fury, and was a visual effects modeller on The Devil’s Rock.
Recently I worked in San Diego as the Head of the Art Department for Hydroswing North America.
