After initially training as a graphic designer Ian began developing his signature style; experimenting with complimentary bold and bright images, presenting contrasting fragments of the world in vintage B-movie, Mythology, Folklore and Sci-fi themes.
Ian’s works have been published by Penguin (100 illustrated adventures of Doctor Who) and he has displayed work in Worthing Museum. He has an original piece on display at Norman Cook’s (Fatboy Slim) Big Beach Café in Hove.
Since 2017, Ian has worked as a Resident Artist for Wellsbourne Healthcare CIC. In 2018 he was invited to be a member of the Our Place Steering Group in association with the Brighton Festival, bringing arts to East Brighton in many forms. This included Ian setting up the first ever East Brighton art trail called Trailblazer.
In 2021 Ian created an origami installation at The Spire, a decommissioned church in Brighton. Entitled, “Souls to Paradise” it featured over 2,000 handmade paper cranes from people who had lost loved ones to the Covid pandemic. This received national coverage.
Ian is currently a regular artist at Conclave Gallery in Brighton and exhibits for Brighton Artists Open Houses. He is currently taking bookings for 2023 including B-movie portraits or bespoke commissions.
