I grew up in an industrial part of England within walking distance of beautiful countryside, moving to Manchester to study Graphic Design in my teens.
My prints have been exhibited in Museums, Hotels and exhibitions around the country. The style of my art draws on the interest I have for the classic travel posters of the 1930’s and the optimism for the future portrayed in many of these vintage works. Subjects I have illustrated stretch from Tudor halls and rolling countryside to the concrete Brutalism of the 1970’s. I think this wide range is a reflection of growing up with heavy industry and being surrounded by rural Derbyshire. I aim to make the unattractive, attractive, to give a greater appreciation of loved and some not so loved subjects.
Research is the key for me, and I see the illustration process as a journey to a greater understanding of my subject. If I come away from a finished commission knowing more than I did before I started, then I am happy.
