“You’re a grumpy sod who makes art most people don’t understand or want, which is fine…”


I’m actually a bit of a dreamer. I’m inspired by many things and my work can go in various directions.

Over the past couple of decades I’ve been creatively destroying, decorating, and altering surfaces. The bulk of this has been in the form of ‘freehand’ tattooing in graphic and abstract styles. In more recent years I have made a return to producing artwork in other forms, namely painting and sculpture.

Most of my ideas come from a fascination with surface detail and structure, combined with a love of sci-fi and architecture.

With over 25 years of experience as an artist and tattooist, and becoming known for working without the aid of preplanned designs, I have tattoo collectors visiting me from all over the world.

Although I generally like to keep a low profile, my work has been included in international publications, music videos, fashion projects, national museum exhibitions, and I was once mentioned in association with a high profile movie release.

I am based in Brighton on the south coast of England.

But yes, sometimes I get tired and grumpy!
