A variety of genres covers the available works, from the unreal to photorealistic. A common theme running throughout the gallery is that most images have an element of surrealism. Sometimes quirky and humorous, and at other times serious and abstract.

Three Dimensional - just like the real world

Every picture you see on this website started life as a three dimensional model built using software. These are not photographs, although photographs may have been used as references, for inspiration and occasionally for backdrops and textures.

Once the model is created it is then textured and lit before being rendered out as a digital image.

Being in control of the source model provides the means to customise and personalise the visuals and offer a bespoke result.

3D also allows for 360° and Virtual Reality renders that can be viewed using a VR headset.

Digital = flexible

Digital images can be used in many ways. They are immediately web-ready for inclusion into your website. They can be output using a variety of methods to produce wall art - art prints, framed prints, canvas prints and acrylic prints. Large format output is also available for posters, banners, large format canvas and acrylic and even wallpaper.

Video of animated scenes can also be used on the web but also for explaining concepts, for sales, marketing & training purposes and simply for entertainment.

Being digital means that the same scene can be resampled or rendered at different resolutions and sizes to suit your requirement.

Art - an adventure of the mind

Art is often described as being subjective in that two people may not feel the same way about a single piece. One thing is clear though, art in your environment will often stimulate and boost creativity, and at the same time help to reduce stress.

In the work environment, art can be used to enhance your corporate image and provide visitors with a visually appealing experience. At the same time it can give employees a sense of pride in their workplace, something that can be motivational and that's good for business.
