I am a passionate, pro-active 3D artist, specialising in architectural visualisation. I have years of experience from having worked with many London visualisation studios including Hayes Davidson. In Sweden I have worked with Tengbom Architects, and am currently in-house with Sweco, one of Scandinavia's biggest architects.
I believe networking is an essential part of being a 3D artist. I have co-founded a Stockholm arch-viz meetup called Sweviz where we encourage collaboration, skill sharing, problem solving and of course socialising. I'm British, I'm good at that!
Seven Acres, Cambridge, UK ▼▲
Hayes Davidson 2012
A set of 5 illustrations showing a Swedish inspired residential development.. Every image was created using carefully selected references and the HD image planning process creating a unique feel and realism in each. I was afforded good time with these images including many client revisions.
See also my CGI alongside a photograph of the actual project.

En dag, tre bilder "challenge" ▼
One day, three pictures. This was a one day project where I had to create as much as I could from an architect's ArchiCAD model. This breakdown film demonstrates my efforts at an efficient workflow; using models from old files, simple Photoshop structure, image planning. Although not the most stunning set of images, it is always fun to challenge myself to do as much as I can and impress the architects! It also proves that 3D images don't have to be expensive and slow to produce.

Bokompakt - ▼
This was a video editing and graphics project I did for a hugely popular student housing scheme in southern Sweden. I had to clip the film together, add motion graphics and sound effects. The video got well over 8000 hits in it's first few months!

Tengbom Arkitekter 2014
Sundbypark, Sweden ▼
Tengbom Arkitekter 2013
Concept illustrations of an early design proposal for a new business complex just north of Stockholm. The entrance image had to portray the types of activity/life that could go on outside the building.

Akademiska Stråket, Solna, Sweden ▼
Tengbom Arkitekter 2013
Competition illustrations for a new "academic mall" between the campus environments. One image was started "from scratch" and the other was worked on from another architect's work. Both of these were performed with a tight a deadline.
Mästerhuset, Stockholm, Sweden ▼
Tengbom Arkitekter 2013
Mästerhuset is a redevelopment project that will replace three inefficient buildings with a single, modern world-class property of prime office and retail accommodation.
A long running project, these 2 images were part of a marketing push by the client. This project was heavily controlled by the client, and it was important to balance their requests whilst retaining the quality of the image.

Marketing value in illustrations ▼
Some images I created to show the value that can be extracted from an illustration, even if it was only made for one use. For example, a client might have wanted an image for their presentation material. But this image can go a lot further than that; advertising, magazines, apps.
T-Mobile HQ ▼
The Interiors Group 2011
Wagstaffs Design ▼
A selection of images from the 3 years I spent working at this design and communication agency in London. A main client of ours was Tesco, and we became extremely efficent in producing the same image types for them; aerial overviews, entrance views across the carpark, camera matching.
I am always interested to hear from fellow artists and professionals. I am based in Uppsala, Sweden but mainly work in Stockholm. I am currently not looking for work in the UK.
