If you have an idea of a picture which you would like to see on paper or screen, I can provide it for you. I have many satisifed clients who have come with a photo they want to have rendered in pencil, line art or oil, or a rough sketch with an idea or concept they want to see professionally realized.

Conversely, if you need help in getting a suitable illustration and really don't know what you want, I can give advice and ideas of what would work, and collaborate with you to develop a concept that suits your needs.

Service Description

Working with art since graduating from Art Academy 1989 has given me a long and varied experience of many different projects. I started with portraits, both in oil and pencil, and soon got commissions for public art in hospitals and illustrations for books/magazines.

I have won prizes for both logotype design and illustrations, the latter ranging from photorealistic to cartoon/manga. Over the years, I have sucessfully made illustrations for both fact and fiction. Using a realistic style, I have made illustrations for academic essays, roleplaying gamebooks, novels and company logotypes, while a more stylized and cartoony aproach has proved successful for illustrations for cooporate presentations and adventure novels.

I pay great attention to detail and I believe in good communication with my clients, from the first idea/sketch, to the final, completed work, which naturally is delivered before agreed deadlines. I don't accept or apply for a job I am not sure I can do justice within the constraints given - I'm as loathe to waste my own time as that of the client.

Please have a look at my portfolio to see some of the things I've done, or go to my website for more. You can find it here:
