I was born in 1980 on 27th december. Yes I kept my poor mother in hospital on boxing day. I was born in the South East of the UK, eldest of six.
Since I can remember I have alway been drawing, colouring and writing. I focused on Art in school and college. I studied to A level in college, and this was when I was first introduced to Photoshop and digital work in graphic design.
Although soon afterwards I left home and worked full time for the next 5 years, before I took my art seriously, and took the leap to pursue a career in Art. I am self taught in Photoshop, developing new methods of colouring and art.
Since I was a kid I loved Graphic Novels. I was always in the library reading them or at home. I always loved the journey they took you on. I tried coloring comics nearly two years ago now and found how much I loved it, giving the story an extra element. I have been hooked coloring comics ever since, and here I am!
I now live in County Durham, in the North East of England, with my Fiancé Jim, and our 4 cats, 3 fish and 2 rats....yes I know a menagerie!

Major comic book influences:
Chris Claremont, John Byrne, Frank Miller, Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Ron Marz, Peter David and Terry Moore.
Authors whose stories I have recently or am currently reading:
Neil Gaiman, Stephen King (Hey, I’m from Maine), Jim Butcher and Caitlin Kiernan. In truth I am more of a bargain hunter and enjoy discovering “new” authors by digging through the discount bins.
Interests outside of comics:
Besides spending as much time as I can with my wife and daughter I have taken up the sport of triathlons and fully intend on making it a life-long commitment.
Questions I ask myself when deciding on whom to partner with in this industry, in this order, are 1. Do they have a genuine passion for comics 2. Are they truly committed and driven? and 3. Do they have talent? To say Michael, Gary and Lisa have all three going for them would be a gross understatement. These guys (and girl) continue to amaze me and I am extremely lucky to call them my partners.
I remember the feeling I had when I reached the last page of my first comic and realised I was left with a cliffhanger. I HAD to get the next issue.
