A JOURNEY THROUGH MY CREATIVE WORK FROM 1988 TO THE PRESENT AND BEYOND..........

 

With any story ....a begining.....for me it started late in 1988 when I decided to take my work into a new direction .

Following nineteen years of photography covering Portraits , Weddings  and General Advertising work , I moved into the UK Toy Industry and Children's Comics .

 

This new direction for me over the next thirty two years would use my creative talents and imagination across many areas of the Toy Industry , Children's Publishing Projects and across the web .

 

I have worked with many Companies over these years.....with big and small projects.....the list of the Companies and the Products are endless...many I don't remember now they were extremely busy times.......but here are some of them.....Kenner Toys - Bluebird Toys - Hasbro Toys - Mattel Toys - Marvel Comics - Panini Comics - Titan Comics - MGA Toys USA  - Toontastic Comics - Cartoon Network Comic - Warner Bros Looney Toons - GEMMA Cards - Pedigree Books  and many more......some of the best products in the Toy Business have passed through my studios over the years .
