I am an artist living in London and I work with a wide range of media including print, stained glass and video.
For some thirty plus years I have worked with new media, principally as a Designer, developing digital skills from video production to graphic design. In the mid 90’s I took up a post at the University of the Arts, London, as Senior Designer, where I worked for over a decade. After going freelance I started to play around with more traditional media, painting and drawing and also stained glass.
After much experimentation, exploring a range of media to discover the power and limitations of each, I started to focus on a hybrid interactive art project called 'Art Box' which evolved into a video artform known as 'machinima'. I was fortunate enough to receive early recognition and received corporate commissions for my machinima work from several blue chip companies, including Microsoft, Intel, HBO and Reebok, amongst others.
More recently I have started to work again with paper and ink, often mixing stencil creations with digital techniques. My work draws inspiration from film, photography, and occassionally, politics.
