Born in 1965 in Liverpool his first job was in advertising at the age of 16, this is where he was first introduced into illustration work. After two years he fell in love with illustration and he took a job as an in house illustrator for Image Software, a computer games company. Here he produced many of their games covers. An opportunity arose for him to become a full time freelance illustrator, working for some of the biggest advertising agencies in the country.

Over the next 8 years, he slowly came away from advertising and started illustrating children's books, for publishers all over the world, for the likes of Disney, Ravensberger, Egmont, Random House and Mattel. Working mainly on licensed characters from Disney, Thomas the Tank, Noddy, Dora, Bob the Builder and an array of covers for fiction novels.

Fine art has been his passion after experimenting with different styles and subjects, He finds that landscapes is where he can express himself and hopefully this shows through his paintings.
