I live in East Yorkshire, England, and have been an artist/illustrator since leaving Leicester Polytechnic in 1982 with an Honours Degree in Fine Art (painting and photography). Although I have had a day job in the British Civil Service since 1992, I have continued to produce art work. I have also been a darkroom technician, photographer, camera grip, special effects technician, working on Red Dwarf, TFI Friday, The Tube, Blue Peter, Coronation Street(!) The Brylcreem Boys, Breeders (with Samantha Janus-I got to a) stick a latex rubber monster to her chest and b) pump 155 imperial gallons of KY Jelly into her knickers!), modelmaker and truck driver.
