About

I have worked as a freelance commercial artist since 1994 and, over the last eighteen years, I have employed my skills as an illustrator, cartoonist, graphic designer and storyboard artist. However, it has been my work as a storyboard artist that has given me the greatest satisfaction. Storyboards are a perfect blend of the two things I am most passionate about … drawing and movies. On top of that, I really enjoy the collaboration that is part of making a movie. Film-making is the most collaborative art form of them all and it is truly exciting to play a part in giving a story substance and bringing it to life on the screen.
