I was born in 1949 in Exmouth, South West England. I trained as a carpenter then after moving to London I trained as a groundsman (I missed the wide open spaces).

My lifetime loves have been aviation and prehistoric life. I cut my teeth on Photoshop doing aircraft skins for flight simulators. These images are pencil drawings finished off in Photoshop in much the same way as I completed skins

(Without the red stars and swastikas obviously). The backgrounds are photos mostly converted to watercolour in Photoshop. Many of the photos are from Exmouth and the surrounding area (sea, sand and cliffs are timeless). Because of my interest in aviation I have veered towards Pterosaurs, after all Dinosaurs are well documented. I would like to thank my partner Elaine for teaching me how to use Photoshop, My Son Ben for all his help with the P C, Dave for his help with this website, Paul and Emma for their New Zealand photos, numerous palaeontologists and paleo artists for their inspiration and last but not least Wikipedia for just being there.
