Matte PaintingConcept ArtSketchbookShowreel
I am a creative problem solver who enjoys working collaboratively with other artists on visual arts and VFX projects.

I arrived at my chosen career through a love of old-school 'paint on glass' matte paintings, and the special effects movies of the late '70s and early '80s.

I'm honoured to be working 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.

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.
