After 25 years of using traditional media, I now draw in Photoshop. The quality of the brushes has revolutionised how I work, enabling me to create images which satisfy my love of texture, colour and sensitivity in drawing. I also like to challenge myself, and constantly develop these Fine Art skills. The subjects which interest me most are TV drama, history and architecture.

 

For the last 3 years I've built a new portfolio including personal projects, which have pushed me to improve my work, and now I feel a new wave of creativity.
