Welcome to my world...

I am a digital artist/illustrator and electronic musician based in Sheffield, UK. This website showcases my ongoing exploration of science fiction artwork and instrumental music.

My job as an illustrator is to provide that vital visual link between the viewer and the concept; to create worlds for escapeism via a single image or to take an author’s words or idea and transform that into a portal for the audience. Recently described as an art form in itself, science fiction provides escape from every day life, whether it be in the form of books, film or artwork.

SF has inspired me from an early age, from my first experiments with computer-aided artwork in the early 90s to 2010 when that influence came full circle and I began creating my own brand of SF artwork, often with a nod towards the visionary SF art of the 1970s and 80s.

There is an inevitable convergence between art and music – both are like painting; only one uses sounds, the other colours.

I have been recording atmospheric music under the name “The Light Dreams” since 2006. What started out as a personal hobby evolved into something I was confident in releasing independently. In 2012 I was invited to be an honorary musician/artist for the Initiative for Interstellar Studies (I4IS).

Come and explore – whether you’re just browsing or looking for an artwork or music commission, I hope you like what you find in the Light Dream.
