Growing up in the North West of England Roy started drawing at an early age. If he didn’t have a pencil and paper to hand he would always be found drawing on the street flags outside his childhood home drawing pictures in chalk and sometimes getting a small audience of a couple of passers-by.
Roy went on to study art and design which then lead on to a position in a greeting card studio Hambledon Studios, a small division of Hallmark. Now a professional illustrator he provide a diverse style to accommodate a wide range of clientele were his artwork can range from fine art, illustration for greeting cards right through to avatars for company branding.
With his style ever changing Roy finds the best thing for him is to get out on his bike around the ‘just shy a of a mountain’ Pendle Hill were he can not only get inspiration but to clear his head for new projects ahead!
