Featured in University of Northampton Prospectus 2016
Having left college in the late-80s and gone straight into a four year job as a technical illustrator for a Japanese company, followed by another four years working as a magazine illustrator, I didn't end up going to university until I was a mature student (well, technically mature). And I'm thankful that I did take that time out before re-entering education, because I'm pretty sure that if I had of gone straight from college to university, instead of being the working hard and playing hard twenty seven year old that In was, I fear that I'd just have been the party-hard nineteen year old, and totally wasted my time at uni.
I got a lot out of my time studying at University of Northampton, so when I was asked if I would like to be featured in their 2016 prospectus I was more than happy to say yes. One of the bonuses of saying yes was that the university sent the very talented photographer, Paul Michael Hughes, round to my studio to set up a shoot, and Paul very generously said that I could use the photos for my own art publicity purposes; a prime example of which is those used in this recent article on me and my studio for Artfinder - Work It! A look inside our artists' studios....
