My disenchantment with the modern world has led me to the myths and stories of older times, when the world still held some wonder and people dreamed of gods and monsters. It is my passion to tell stories through art, to create a glimpse into a lost world that never truly existed, but one that should have.My imagination is captured by myths of all cultures, but in particular those that have come to my home of Britain in times of old; Norse, Celtic, Anglo Saxon, Arthurian Romance. These stories inspire and inform my artwork. Everything on here will be my illustrative work, for which I use watercolour ink and pencil. The style is heavily influenced by artists like Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac and other's from the same period. I like Myth and legend, books (particularly antique ones), films, art, history, poetry, landscape and nature, alchemy, antiques, film making, video games, astronomy...
