My love of Motorsport and anything on wheels, stretches back to childhood and fortunately growing up nearby to Silverstone.
Upon leaving school, I took a YTS job designing and making vinyl stickers for race teams, with a Sign Maker based at Silverstone circuit. It was here - in 1990 - where I learnt the skill of hand cutting vinyl.
Shortly after starting the job, I left to go to art college. After graduating from Central St Martins, I worked as a Creative in some of the worlds biggest ad agencies and since leaving Advertising in 2015, I have now gone full-circle and returned to the unique skills learnt back at Silverstone, by again hand-cutting vinyl. Only now to create artworks of classic road and racing cars.
From my research so far, I believe I am the only artist using hand cut vinyl as a medium – therefore my art work has a truly unique 'finish' as that of the real car I'm depicting. The results are bright, bold 'Pop Art' artworks, that will deliver a punch of colour to any space.
In the very short time I have been creating vinyl artworks, I have been featured in; Classic and Sports Car, Petrolicious.com, Octane, Classic Driver, The Week, Pistonheads, Cars Yeah... to name but a few.
