"Purveyor of exquisitely stained pieces of paper"

In the mid 80's I studied Film Animation at what was then the Newport Film School where I gained my diploma.
At this time I met my future wife and eventually settled in the Rhymney Valley South Wales.
I began my career as a Cartoon Animator in the early 90's working for studios in Cardiff and Bristol that produced feature films and children's TV series for BBC, ITV, CH4 and S4C
I was part of the team that turned Prince Charles' book The Old man of Lochnagar into the 25 minute special 'The Legend of Lochnagar'. The Prince invited our team to his Highgrove home where I got to shake his hand and drink his whisky.

I left the industry in 2009 to become a professional watercolour artist
