The work in my online gallery covers artworks and paintings which give an eclectic mix of styles. The inspiration has come-about from recent commissions which have spurred me on to start again using my favourite mediums of oils, pastels, water colour and pencils not forgetting airbrush acrylic on gold leaf. I have recently exhibited in Fisherton Mill on Fisherton Street Salisbury, the exhibition was called 13by13 in September 2016.
I also set up a small Pop Up Gallery called PUG 01 in Wilton Shopping Village, Nov 2016 to July 2017 with new bits of work mixed with pictures from the exhibition in September.
Now changed to an online Gallery, www.P-U-G01.co.uk please give it a visit. Some example of my work can be seen in Wilton Shopping Village, Nadder & Wylye home and gift and Eardley Art and P-U-G01.
My working career: Started in 1982 at a Mechanical and Electrical company in Littlehampton called Oval Automation. In 1984, I moved to the Flight Simulator Industry until the summer of 1990 when redundancy changed my path. I decided to follow my passion for art and attend a summer fine art foundation course at Maidstone Art College, setting myself up for a career change to art and design. Within the same year, I applied for a Design Information & Technical Illustration course at Bournemouth & Poole Art College, which I was accepted for and studied for 4 years gaining an HND Distinction pass.
When I left college, my next job was in Technical Illustration working for Deutsche Airbus in Germany on a six month contract. In July 1995 I started with the MOD in Woolwich as a Graphics Officer and I am still working as a designer for the MOD currently in Andover. In February 2004 I was elected as a member to The Chartered Society of Designers (MCSD).
