I was introduced to the world of cars when my mother bought me my first Dinky Rolls Royce which I insisted on trying to drive along the pavement into town. This was followed by more toy cars and an MGB pedal car with opening doors, bonnet and boot (aged 4). I made a tiny hole in the boot and filled it with water (pretend petrol). I would drive up and down our close until the water ran out, after which I would push it home to refill.
My early adult life was spent on a diet of 1970's Fords including mainly Mk1 Capri's and Several Cortina Mk1 & Mk3s, Granada's and a Fairlane 500 followed.
I also have a passion for classic BMW's having owned a few 2500 E3s and a couple of 3.0S E3 models .
In the early 1990's I became heavily involved in the Mini scene and many Minis passed through my hands. It was at this time I started drawing cars in pencil, and then experimented using various mediums as I wanted to do the cars in a choice of colours. I finally settled for digital art as it allows me more flexibility and creativity.
I indulge in my passion for classic cars through my artwork and like to achieve a high level of realism.
