Creating beautiful dolls and hyper realistic characters since 2005. I have worked many years as an engineer and also have a masters degree in prosthetics and effects from Falmouth university in conjunction with Gorton Studio. I work as a freelance artist from my purpose built studio in Hampshire (or on set as needed) as well as teaching as an associate lecturer in prosthetics and special effects at Southampton Solent University. I create babies, characters, portraits, prosthetics and performance props. I also provide consultancy services to companies who manufacture in silicone, and casting and moulding services for other artists.
My skills are broad both engineering and art based. I develop characters both digitally and traditionally in clay and produce them through a range of traditional mold making approaches as well as digital methods including 3D printing. I am able to finish pieces to a very high level of realism using hand paint application, airbrush, hair punching (rooting), fur transfer and flocking, having won several awards for my work.
The studio is fully quipped for both traditional and digital production including advanced 3D scanning, 3D printing in resin / wax / plastics, 3/4/5 axis CNC milling and turning, pressure casting, rotocasting, vacuum degassing, composites/glass fibre. A fully functional electronics lab enables me to incorporate components such as servos, LEDs or sensors into a design.
