So, after over 30 years working in advertising and image making industry as an art director, photographer and illustrator, I’ve decided to embark on another journey… wrought iron and the design and manufacture of metalwork objects.
Having spent some time working on the new skills as a hobby, in my metalwork projects, I see lots of connections between illustration work and the art and craft of metalwork, and have found that the two disciplines complement each other in numerous ways. This means that I’m looking to continue with both endeavours (just with lots more hand washes). I would be delighted if you would share the journey with me.
