A British freelance designer and illustrator/artist based in Switzerland, a little north of the Vevey/Montreux region. Originally trained as an automotive designer and worked for Volkswagen AG before coming to Switzerland to teach design and drawing at Art Center’s now closed Swiss campus.
As well as design work, he also paints automotive and sports subjects.
The paintings are done with acrylic on canvas in an impressionistic, expressive style tocapture motion and emotion. Some canvases are up to 5m long, but he also work in formats like 120 to 150cm X 80 to 100cm. He has also been experimenting with wall sculptures. Commissions include posters for the Villa d’Este concours, Klausen Memorial, a series of paintings for Bentley and a Red Bull karting competition poster for an event held in England a few years ago. He was also the poster artist for the Grand Prix Suisse revival which took place in Bern in August last year.
