David Welstead-Wood   |   Matte Painter   |   Concept Artist
I am a creative problem solver who enjoys working collaboratively with other artists on visual arts and VFX projects.

I have 20+ years of professional CG experience, which has developed from my love of old-school 'paint on glass' matte paintings, and the special effects movies of the late '70s and early '80s.

It has been my honour to have worked as a visual effects artist on the new Star Wars films at Industrial Light and Magic, and also to have been part of the Oscar winning Jungle Book team at Moving Picture Company. I am currently a proud member of the matte painting team at Framestore in London.

My portfolio here is a selection of both personal and professional work, inspired by a variety of disciplines including industrial design, cinematography and impressionist painting.
