His influences and inspiration have come from a wide range of genres. Oriental art, British Impressionism, the Glasgow Boys, and elements of the Pop Art movement, to name but a few. He also holds great respect for a number of twentieth century illustrators, Sir Frank Brangwyn, N.C. Wyeth and Norman Rockwell being some of the best.
