I have always been inspired by the natural world around me, preferring to work from life where possible, sketching outdoors whenever I can. Some of my work is commissioned for jigsaws, posters and wall murals. These pieces require more work and many sketches are made before I am happy with a design. Only then will I start the final painting. I mostly use acrylics at the moment, but remain very fond of watercolour (especially for botanical work).
One of my many favourite artists is Albrecht Dürer and I have always loved the work of the Pre-Raphaelites. Having made many paintings of dinosaurs for some of my commercial work, I have become a fan of the paleo artists Julius Csotonyi and Raul Martin, who have become a great inspiration to me.
