I chose to do a picture of the A1 Peppercorn Tornado, as it was in part built and finished in Loughborough's Great Central Railway and wanted something to tie in the local history of the location.

Profile

After graduating in 2000 from Loughborough University in BA (Hons) Illustration, I worked in a number of creative roles as an artist and designer until 2008 when I went freelance. In my 20 years of working as a professional artist, I've pretty much worked in every possible application for commercial arts; from designing 16x16 pixel icons for database analysis software, to a giant three-dimensional octopus for a steampunk theme bar! My approach is to cater for the individual needs of the client, rather than adhere to any particular style. However, I have a keen interest in drawing characters in portrait and figurative format, along with all things mechanical.
