I have been interested in art from the age of five and would always be told off for drawing on the front of my school books! I was heavily inspired to draw computer game related art after getting a NES in 1986 from my parents as a gift when it was released in the EU. For the years that followed, and many a new console later ( ;) ), and upon reaching secondary school I decided that I wanted to have a career in games as an artist.

I did A-Level Art after my GCSE exams and then a Diploma in foundation studies art at Wimbledon College, I then went on to recieve a BA Honors in Graphic Design at the Surrey Institute of Art & Design.

Soon after leaving university in 2004 I landed my first job in games for SEGA Europe as a Tester. After two years I started leading teams of testers and left to go work at 2K Games for a further three years as a Lead Tester. After leaving 2K Games I began work for the PlayStation team at Sony London as a Development Tools Tester where I decided to teach myself 3D modelling in my spare time to become a more established artist. Eventually I was given the opportunity to work on a project as Concept/3D Artist which I still do to this day at Sony.

Now developing my skills further I hope to help other artists and also become a better artist myself by learning as much as I possibly can everyday.

To date I have been lucky enough to have worked on over 25 game titles during my time in the industry spanning nine years.

List of some games I have been credited for to date can be found here, I've worked on others but sometimes if you work on a game for only a couple of months you don't always get listed on the credits:

Hi followers,

Hope you are all good? I have finally just put a brand new piece of art up for you guys, and as promised it's of the dashing Link himself - so all you Zelda fan boys and gals can hopefully enjoy him.
Sorry for the larger gaps between my updates lately but I am busy making a new game at work and we are extremely busy, and therefore my time for personal pieces is somewhat lacking!
I will still be working on bits during my lunch breaks as always, it will just take longer to get them to you. :)

You look like a good person to watch for art. Would so like to get creative/artistic myself but haven't been able to find the time. All I can do is look for things to inspire me.
