I am an English artist, designer and educator living in Los Angeles. After studying Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art in the UK I switched my attention to Illustration and Graphic Design as a means of making a living. Since 1998 I have taught computer based art and design classes at various schools in Los Angeles and Orange County. I also continue to work as an illustrator and designer.
Since 2006; beginning with a show at The Harmony Gallery in Hollywood called "Urban Landscapes" I have begun to exhibit my work in galleries. I have shown at various galleries around LA. Encouraged by sales of my work I am gradually spending more of my time creating my own work.
The work is a mixture of photography, digital process and painting and the images to a large extent develop from the process. They emerge by cutting and pasting parts of different images, adjusting coloring, layering and painting into the images to form something which is not quite real but equates to my perception of the city.
