I originally studied Art and Design in Cheltenham with the intention of going into teaching but fate being what it is I found myself working for a prestigious film company with a long history in British animation. Here I helped in the production of animated television commercials and feature films. That was in the days when everything was done by hand, no computers then! Redundancy forced me into a change of career direction and I became a freelance illustrator specialising in cartoons and working for a variety of book publishers. I did this until several years ago when the frustrations of dwindling budgets and limited deadlines prevented me from completing commissions to a standard I was happy with so I turned my back on that discipline and found part-time work in a non-creative field which now gives me time to pursue my own work without external constraints. I enjoy being out in the countryside walking, drawing or photographing my surroundings and my paintings often reflect my observations and encounters. I'm particularly fascinated by the brown hare, an animal whose history goes deep into our culture, folklore and superstitions but whose numbers are sadly declining. I always get a thrill when I see one. (Or half a dozen chasing each other round a field. Wonderful!) I also try to aim some of my pieces towards younger buyers, I've always encouraged my own children to buy original artworks that they can afford.

What a fantastic way to recycle old books into a piece of useful art. My wife was delighted with this gift. We store our TV remotes in the box. It looks very stylish.
