About The Artist
Subsequently he has forged a successful career as an artist for large greetings card companies & fine art publishers.
A natural people watcher, Ian’s many trips to parks, zoos and the seaside with his family are always accompanied by a pencil and sketchbook.
His paintings aim to convey the simple pleasures in life, such as a bike ride through the woods or an impromptu bounce on a trampoline, through the use of his gentle larger than life characters, limited colour palette and subtle shading.
The characters’ expressionless faces often give a sense that they are daydreaming… something that Ian can relate to being an artist!
Ian lives and works in Sheffield with his partner, two children and an array of pets.
