Faster Higher Stronger: 9.69 seconds in the Birds Nest Stadium, World Cup football, street life in Africa, jungle scenes in Borneo, changing communities and architecture in East London for London 2012. I work with a pen, a sketchbook an Ipad and a camera on location. In the studio I make illustrations, prints and paintings for a wide range of different clients. I have published 10 books for children including 'World Team' for Random House. In August 2008 I traveled to Beijing to record the Olympic Games and exhibited more than 70 paintings from the Games at the Bankside Gallery, London, in 2009. In the same year I was elected an Associate member of the Royal Watercolour Society. In 2010 I was in Xi'an academy in China for the Xi'an International print workshop. In 2011 I took part in a Design Inquiry workshop in Montreal. In 2012 I recorded the London Olympic Games as the Times Newspapers Olympic Artist featuring in the paper every day during the games, and exhibiting the work at 'The Gallery' in Redchurch Street with a catalogue published by the Wunderkamer Press and forward by Simon barnes, The Times chief sports writer. In 2013 I am using a bursary from the RCA to document the Mount Athos Monasteries over 3 different visits culminating in an exhibition that will contribute to the archive of a unique place where life has changed very little for more than 1000 years.
