My interests are broad, so my artwork tends to reflect that. As a boy I used to admire the artwork of the ‘comics’, especially the illustrations of Frank Bellamy in the ‘Eagle’. And, as a small boy, I can remember being struck by the exquisite line drawings in an old set of encyclopaedias. These encounters have clearly influenced my approach to artwork.
I have always been fascinated by science fiction, mythology and legend. And, I have always had a strong desire to tell stories. So, naturally all these elements commonly emerge in the artwork I choose to do.
As the years have progressed, my boyhood fascination with the natural world has grown. I often reflect on such matters and thoughts crystallise into an inner statement: ‘This is a truly wonderful place!’ Hence I am compelled to represent it, to celebrate it, and to inform others of its intrinsic worth.
