I am professional illustrator with over 40 years experience.
I have been working exclusively digitally for the last 10 years. I work in a â€˜photorealisticâ€™ style, using Corel Painter (vX) in conjunction with a Wacom Touch tablet and pressure sensitive stylus. Although my work is often mistaken for photographs, I do not use photographs for anything other than reference. All artwork is painted in the same way as with traditional media.
I won the Grand Prize in the Corel Asia-Pacific Digital Art Competition 2011 with a work entitled 'Reddish Egret', a very similar painting to one displayed here on FAA entitled 'Reddish Egret 2'
I have decided to offer all new artwork both with and without borders, keylines and titles. I will re-post the 'image only' versions of artwork already posted in due course and in future will only post art without them so if you'd like to purchase a copy with them, please let me know via email.
