Illustration, digital art, printmaking, painting, watercolours
After spending many years creating title animations and graphics for a wide range of programes for the BBC, and other television companies, I ventured into illustration, printmaking and painting. I find the botanical forms and landscapes that I am surrounded by, here in Cambridgeshire, very beautiful and arresting and I tried to capture this through use of traditional forms of printmaking and collage. But now, I am beginning to use the experience I gained from producing artwork digitally for use in television programmes, and am transferring it to my personal work.
I have started using computer manipulation in conjunction with traditional techniques to produce images which are turned into giclee prints. They are still limited editions; the files being destroyed after the allocated numbers are produced. It’s quite a radical departure from the norm, but I hope the results will be visually exciting.
