Welcome to the Virtual Aircraft Website
I was born in 1969 and was raised in Somerset (UK), and lived in various villages that were never far from RNAS Yeovilton. Aircraft were always flying overhead, and I became obsessed by them from an early age.
This obsession also fed into my creative output, fuelled by books, box artwork and comics. My professional career as an aviation illustrator began in 2001, and since then I have created imagery for a variety of books, magazines and model kits. The aim of this website is to showcase my aviation art. I have a particular interest in those types that are less well-known or perhaps less 'glamourous' than their more famous bretheren. I hope to add to this site as I create new images, as well as update some of the older examples. In the meantime, please browse the Gallery section to see my present collection. The images have been arranged in reverse chronological order - that is, from my most recent work to my earliest.
I would like to thank the following people for their help, guidance and encouragement:
