Born in Glasgow, Scotland and raised in various places round the Central Belt, I have always had a passion for making things and drawing. During the mid 1990s, I went to Edinburgh Art College to study Stop-Motion Animation where my degree film featured an armatured puppet goblin. In the following years, I studied Photography, a Post Grad in Fine Art Painting and have recently completed a 2 year HND in Model Making to improve my existing 3D making skills. In between, I've worked as an artist, maker and in arts event production.
My 3D work includes working with theatrical and lighting companies on large and small projects making props, sets and costume as well as private commissions and personal projects. I am working now as a prop maker, puppet maker as well as a maker of exhibition pieces and sculpture. I have had commissions from Surge Scotland, The Touring Network, as well as working collaboratively with theatre practitioners.
My painting specialises in portraiture and figurative subjects, working mostly in oils and acrylic, where as my illustrative drawing, uses pencil, ink and includes watercolours. I have work in private collections across the UK, Catalonia and Cyprus, with an illustration of a toad used as the logo for Alabamian Music Festival, Toadlick.
