In 2006 I spread my wings and began to explore the world. My life is driven by my mobility, which provides me with a bottomless well of creativity and a constant source of inspiration, as I'm fueled with fresh ideas from the variety of cultures all around the globe. This wonderful lifestyle has given me the opportunity to live in some of the most inspirational cities of the world, meeting people and experiencing their food and culture first hand: Chicago, San Diego, Orlando, Honolulu, Christchurch, Manila and Bangkok. Even so, I’ll never truly leave behind my roots in the luscious green English countryside that I grew up in.

It’s impossible to lavish so much attention to the curves and chrome of the motorcycles I have custom painted without being infected by the enthusiasm and love of the freedom of the open road that so many of their owners have. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to ride my Harley along the length of Route 66 over an unforgettable 3 months soaked in American history. Given half a chance, I love nothing more than talking to people who can derive some pleasure from all kinds of folk art, especially when I’m visiting custom car, bike and tattoo shows.

Throughout my entire adult life I’ve been lucky to make a career out of what I love: airbrushing motorcycles, crash helmets, guitars, snow boards and even a drag car. When I don’t have an airbrush in my hand, I also enjoy digital art, and create logos, T-shirt designs, business cards, brochures and websites: most recently, my own Lunarian Art and Lunarian Tattoo websites to showcase some of my talents as a graphic design artist.

Education and Experience.
