ABOUT BILL

Me in a nutshell

I currently Work as a Web and Graphic Designer where my skills have grown in a busy and exciting creative environment. I also continue to create art over many disciplines in my spare time pushing my creativity constantly. I consider my self an all round creative. My Fine Art training has given me skills in visual problem solving and strong concept abilities. I completed my Fine Art degree in 2002 and began to exhibit my work around the London area. I have shown at various events and galleries including The Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair, The Backyard Market, The Austin Gallery, The Foundry, NO:ID Gallery, Harts Lane Studios and I have created Logos for companys such as InfiniteRooms.co.uk and I have created websites for myself such as this one and for other companys like Premier Roofing and Construction. BlackInklines.com is where you can purchase some of my cheap black ink drawings which aims to bring original art to the masses and has had my ink drawings used on the cover of the album Heads up by Annique! I play the piano and guitar, enjoy playing pool, chess and love watching film.
