After graduating, with distinction, from Gemini School of Art in 1992 Rob quickly established himself as a Freelance illustrator, finding much of his work from the world of sport. Combining his ability to capture a likeness with his training in landscape painting, he was ideally suited to producing iconic images of stars from horse racing, cricket and motor racing. In 2008 Rob was commissioned by Saatchi & Saatchi to produce four paintings of sporting dogs for their Otrivin campaign. The work was awarded a gold medal at EPICA, Europe’s advertising awards.
Rob has undertaken commissions from many private clients including George Cole MBE, Ross Brawn OBE, Richard Benyon MP and ‘Dragon’ and entrepreneur, Sarah Willingham.
