All my life I have drawn. On scraps of paper, backs of exercise books, my grandmothers wall (I was very young) and my beloved leather jacket (which I still have in the back of my wardrobe). After school (best forgotten) I did 7 years training in various art schools and collages finally graduating in 1991. In 1995, after painting book and video covers for a few years, I became a Concept artist on the film 'The Fifth Element' and have not looked back since. I love the fact that I don't know what type of project I will be working on next. I have worked in Historical, modern day, Science fiction and fantasy genres, on projects big and small. Weather it is a medieval table and chair or a 15 mile long space ship. I love to get into the mind set of the project at hand. I feel that one of my strongest attributes is my flexibility. In 2003 I was working as the Concept art director on Gerry Anderson's New Captain scarlet' when I was offered to join the Directing team. It was a truly great, if daunting, experience that I grasped with both hands. I ended up directing 8 episodes working with a true legend, Gerry, and an amazing group of talented people. IT was an experience I would love to repeat again some day,
