My name is Neil Bellamy, I was born in Manchester on June 19th 1959..
I am one of 4 kids, younger twin brothers and a younger sister, one of my borthers runs an alternative education school in Devon, the other is a clinical psychologist.
I have had a very varied work experience lol, Police Officer, Territorial Army, Factory worker, building site labourer, finance underwriter,domestic appliance repair, leasing manager, and not to forget the infamous cheese throwing experience in the netherlands.
I was married in December 1996 to my wife Jacqui, a cornish girl by birth and we haven't looked back, we spent almost 10 years travelling the world, working and sending a bit of cash home for when we returned. We did eventually return to the UK in 2005, bringing with us, 4 dogs we had collected on our travels, sadly 2 have now passed on.
I was always told i was useless at art when i was at school, and creativity took a back seat until browsing on the web in 2003 I found a site showing digital art created in poser 5.
I ordered a copy and havent looked back. I upgraded to Poser 8 and then to PoserPro 2012.
In 2007, i found i had a quite serious spinal problem and was forced to quit work on medical advice ,so to stop myself going mad, i started painting in acrylics, landscapes and such.
In 2012, April of this year, I decided to start modelling my own meshes instead of constantly using everyone elses. I am really enjoying it.
I love all sorts of art, I do love photorealistic art and one day hope to emulate it in my renders. My music tastes are varied, Pink Floyd being high up the list of faves though, I shed a tear at the proms every year and have been known to slyly wipe the odd drop from the corner of my eye when listening to a moving aria or an amazing guitar solo.
