Heart of Albion
I have always been interested in landscape and forms within the landscape and how these have influenced artists and society and culture in general. My own artistic influences have been Turner and Fredrich, Rossetti, Herbert Draper, Arthur Hughes, Leighton, Burne-Jones, Millais and, of course, the great British 'mystical' school of artists such as William Blake and Samuel Palmer.
For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to be an artist (except for a short period of time when I wanted to be a priest - but that's another story !), and after I finished school in 1986 I spent five years doing my diploma and then my degree in art and design. I currently work as a designer and illustrator for a small company near Birmingham in England.
