Tribe 3

My dad was an art teacher, so I have been surrounded by art from birth and have always filled  my spare time drawing. I did my first tattoo at the age of 16 with a home made tattoo machine built  from lego! Having first stepped foot in Tribe the day after moving to Edinburgh from Orkney, who would have thought that only  a few years later I'd end up apprenticing under Jason Corbett for the same company! Since then I have learnt to adapt to many different styles (particularly calligraphy and Iron Maiden cover artwork!) have worked at the Amsterdam, Edinburgh and Rome conventions and have made thousands of customers from around the globe very happy!

 

Favourite artists: Alphonse Mucha, Simon Bisley, Kev Walker, Derek Riggs, Brian Bolland, Dave McKean
