A Short History
The story so far...
    I studied illustration at Twickenham Technical College 1976-1980 and armed only with a portfolio and youthful enthusiasm I stalked the publishers and agencies of London in search of work. My first employment was with Greenleaf Advertising, starting at the bottom producing visuals, paste up, and many cups of coffee. After a year I left to go freelance as an illustrator and and found an agent - Garden Studio. Through Garden Studio I worked on a wide range of projects such as, books, posters, advertisements, magazine covers, and leaflets, for a variety of clients including, Midland Bank, Bose, Tarmac, Dorling Kindersley, Heinz, Collins, Hamlyn Tesco, Shell, and more frequently the Crown Agents stamp Bureau.
    After many happy years I left Garden Studio to concentrate on stamp design and so far I have designed over 200 sets of stamps for over 40 different countries. One of the reasons I have enjoyed working in the field of stamp design is the wide range of subjects I have been asked to paint : dinosaurs to satellites, Freemasons in Barbados to mapping in Antarctica, and once the
national health insurance stamps for Kenya. Various wildlife issues brought me to the attention of the W.W.F. and several commissions have followed for their first day covers and stamp issues.
    When not painting I like to play football for Redland Ramblers or play Blues guitar in some of the almost respectable establishments around Bristol.
