Aboriginal/Celtic dot work, acrylic on canvas with reclaimed wooden hand made stretchers.
Illustration and bleach etch.
Comics and cartoons.
Born in Sheffield I studied fine art and animation at degree level.
I have worked freelance since the 80’s, beginning as a cartoonist and representing England at the World Comics Convention in Angouleme in 1992.
I began painting in 2006, my subject matter being natural history, landscape and portraiture, often with a narrative. The technique is a mix of aboriginal and Pictish dot style. Designs come directly from observations of animal and human behaviour and the living landscape.
