I’ve always been intrigued by the fantastic; from the Star Wars movies and the Marvel comics which absorbed me as a young child to my love for surrealist art and horror literature which developed later in life I’ve imagined what wonders might be lurking unseen beneath the surface of reality or how worlds will develop in the future if left unchecked to their own devices.
Through the years I’ve explored these flights of invention through visual media such as painting, short filmmaking and animation and I approach all design work from the mindset of my fine art training. More recently I have trained in visual effects with Escape Studios, adding Maya, Mudbox and Nuke to my growing collection of practical skills. I believe that CG images provide the best medium yet for fantasy storytelling and I’m always pushing the boundaries of what I can do with digital art.
