The Big Sky Studio

My professional life as a graphic designer provides plenty of scope for creativity, but generally within some very tight constraints created by time, budget and the use of the Apple Mac, so for my private work I like to work in a more free style and enjoy the brightness and immediacy provided by watercolours, which I combine with acrylic inks, acrylic paint and ink drawing.

Occasionally I like to work in digital media using Adobe Illustrator to create images of cars and aircraft in a Hergé style or local scenes inspired by the classic travel posters of the 1930s.

My subjects are varied, but reflect my surroundings in Onslow Village and Guildford as well as my interests in walking, architecture, landscape and cars. I also enjoy life drawing and taking part in social media ’challenges’ to produce works in particular media or from prompts – especially when I need some inspiration!
