For an artist that works both as a commercial illustrator and exhibiting artist it is essential to define what separates the two. For me exhibition work is primarily seen as a way to share my investigation of chosen themes and methodologies as derived from practice based research. This website hosts a selection of my work that I would classify under this description.
