Born in Glasgow in 1958 AJ has lived most of his life in the Yorkshire Pennines. His passion for art started at a very young age and has strengthened with the years. He decided at school that he wanted a life in the creative arts and went to Art College. From there he leapt into the world of design and advertising, being employed at various leading advertising agencies for 27 years with roles varying from illustrator to print and production manager to account director. In 2006 he decided that a change of direction was needed, so he gave up his career to re-visit his original love-art. Since then he has had his work published and sold around the world. He now concentrates on producing original pieces of art only for sale through select art galleries. Through his work he wants to share with you his unique perspective on life.
