I have 44 years’ experience as a freelance medical and scientific illustrator, working for the leading publishing houses, individual medical clients, art studios and advertising agencies in the UK, Europe and the United States. Presently I work mostly using Photoshop and Illustrator and seek to create work that has the feel and look of traditional media, sometimes combining hand-drawn artwork with digital painting techniques.
Having worked closely with medical colleagues throughout my freelance career I have developed a good understanding of anatomy, medicine and surgery. Coupled with my illustration skills in colour, halftone and line, I feel this equips me well to take on a wide range of medical subjects, working from a client’s original brief through to preparation of preliminary sketches to final production of completed artwork. I cover most aspects of medical illustration and have particular experience in anatomical, medico-legal and surgical illustration, particularly in the areas of orthopaedics, obstetrics/gynaecology and paediatric and general urology.
