My Bio
Hi everyone. I started uploading my pictures recently and the response has been really good, so I thought I should
probably tell you something about myself. I am a self employed artist living in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk on the
Eastern coast of England. I sell my paintings in a local art shop (The Painters Palette), and also take commissions
from here. I work mostly in acrylics but also do pencil drawings. (I have tried my hand at oils with varying success.)
I aim for a photo-realistic style which I guess you either love or hate. The pictures I've posted here are all scans
of work that I've done over the last 5 or 6 years. With the economic recession, work has been sparse of late so I am
the typical "starving artist", but I love doing what I do and it's better than getting a real job,lol.
In my spare time I create digital art using Daz Studio and Poser, (I've posted a bunch of these in my gallery as well.)
I'm totally overwhelmed by the comments I've
recieved and am grateful to everyone who has looked at my pictures. Thanks a lot.
Anyway, thanks for visiting (and for bothering to read this!) I'll post more stuff whenever I can.

Hi everyone. I haven't been around for ages so I thought I'd better post an update. I've been completely swamped over the last couple of months. Several commissions, tons of Daz Studio renders and plenty of 3d modelling (I've been working on a "Frankensteins lab" project in collaboration with dreamslayerartworks.com which will hopefully be released this Halloween as well as a bunch of other freebies). I'll get some more pics posted as soon as I can. I'm currently working on a painting of a pair of horses which will be followed by a (large) drawing of a Wellington bomber and then some steam trains (before moving on to more aircraft). It's the

Hi everyone. I'm officially on holiday now (although I've got flu so it's not so much fun!). I've been so busy over the last few weeks I haven't had much time to post stuff (plus a lot of work has been for Christmas presents so I can't post it yet anyway). Thanks to everyone who's looked at my stuff this year. Hope you all have a great Christmas and a creative new year.

Hi DryJack
I have downloaded so many of your freebies and they all work great with Daz4.9.
I will thank you a lot for all that great stuff and especially that you offer it for free.
Maybe you will recognice some of your works in the pics of my gallery. ;)
Since you've been absent for over a year, I guess you won't see this but happy birthday anyway.
