HELLO FROM LOUD 'N CREATIVE

I am a person that loves to draw. Give me a pen and a piece of paper and I'm usually set for the day/week/year.

I like to indulge my enthusiasm for creating intricate pieces of artwork that pay tribute to the fascinating, chaotic and often beautiful world that we find ourselves in today.

I am on a continuous mission to keep on illustrating and to keep on improving. The question that I am always asking myself is "I like it, but how can I do better?"

Despite never possesing a particularly high level of natural talent for art, I loved to do it so stuck with it from infancy onwards.

In 1999 I graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a degree in Illustration and Animation and just kept on from there.

Armed with my portfolio, I began to knock on a few doors, organised many exhibitions and amassed myself a few regular clients along the way.

Although I have begun to use the computer more and more over the last few years, all my projects still begins their lives as a sketch on a piece of paper. Although incredibly useful, I feel that digital art on its own can often feel a little cold and lifeless which is why I feel that there is no real substitue for the hand drawn line.

That being said, I am often at my happiest when combining the two.

Aside from art, I am a sucker for Heart of Midlothian F.C., reconnecting with nature, all things J.K. Rowling and classic Doctor Who.

To sum up, this website is basically where I keep all my creative stuff. It's not all about me either. If you head over to my blog you’ll find all sorts of art related wonders.
