I am a highly experienced creative digital artist, providing expert retouching services to photographers, movie studios, design studios and advertising agencies worldwide. My career spans 20+ years, mostly in Hollywood, during which I have worked alongside some of the industry’s most successful creative directors and artists, gaining a wealth of experience and developing my own unique style along the way. As one of the pioneering artists of the digital art industry in the late 80’s, I accumulated a vast amount of knowledge backed by a solid background in traditional art. I have a highly developed and critical eye for colour and detail. This experience is evident in every image that I produce. My approach to every brief is relaxed, personal, and results driven, exploring creative visual solutions, and always striving to deliver the best possible results for my clients.
