I have created this page to give an overview of my work.  I use   traditional media, eg, oils, gouache, watercolour, soft pastels and  acrylics for creating paintings.  I normally use paper and charcoal or  Twisted Brush to sketch out ideas and my digital paintings are created with this program. I also create illustrations and animation backdrops using Xara Designer Pro’s and Anime Studio’s vector drawing tools.  I use Zbrush and Hexagon for 3d modelling, Carrara Pro for creating and rendering scenes and Anime Studio Pro for animation work. This was a creature design I did, for an online competition, which was themed around the element of water. Created with Pixara Twisted Brush Pro A space explorer marooned on an ice world, gulp!

Painted with Twisted Brush Pro I love animals and wanted to do a detailed study. This little fellow looks like he's having a real good feast! Oil on canvas board I love watching the garden birds and blue tits are one of our prettiest.  This study was painted 5 " x 4" with gouache on paper I do love stately gardens although ones that are more intimate.  I don't believe there is a better medium for painting gardens than soft pastel.  Painted on sandpaper Most of my early work was with soft pastel and I painted many subjects that you might not expect to be done with this medium.  This subject was quite a challenge and was painted on paper Again, an early digital painting.  I got this idea when I was pondering about how many things have been re-invented throughout history!
