I studied art and graphic design at the Cheshire school of art and graduated in 1986. Since then I have worked for over 35 years within the advertising sector and creative industries, initially as a designer, then progressing to art director and creative director.
Illustration had aways been a passion of mine and an area I wanted to develop commercially. So, after a period of developing my hand cut style I launched Hand Cut Originals in 2014.
Based in Worcester, UK, I mainly divide my time between the art and working as a freelance designer. I sell my art via arts markets and my website in the main, but also through exhibitions, retail outlets and private commissions. I have also demonstrated my craft to arts groups and I now offer workshops from my studio.
