“I have always liked images that hold your gaze. Each time you use them you see different aspects. I think the trick is finding imagery that can be linked in some way. I suppose the connection I make between all my images comes naturally” * quote taken from interview Creative Arts Magazine
My first steps into the world of Digital Art were taken when I was a Restaurant Manager in London. I took it upon myself to design the menus and was immediately hooked by the possibilities that computer creativity offered me. That was over ten years ago, and now I have worked around the world, although he has concentrated on London and Amsterdam where I live with my girlfriend and three year old son (who is also showing the same artistic flair as his daddy). So far I have worked for a variety of magazines – including Creative Review- and design houses.
As I am a completely self-taught artist, I get my ideas from anything and everything that I see around me. “I like lots of stuff from different artists, such as flyers, sticker art, and 1960’s pop art”. Things I see around on the street too: I find that most inspiring.
