Painter and Illustrator
“I'm passionate about the natural world and it provides an endless source of inspiration for my work”.
After graduating from the Norwich School of Art and Design with a degree in illustration, Daren set a up studio in London. Working mainly as an editorial illustrator, he spent 20 years freelancing for advertising agencies where his projects ranged from animation to creating murals for Swatch at Harrods and Heathrow Airport.
In 2016, Daren took a sabbatical spending 4 months in New Zealand where he revaluated his career. It was during this time that he decided to follow his passion and become a full time Artist from his studio in Bracknell, Berkshire UK. Over the last few years, Daren has created a stunning portfolio of acrylic paintings featuring various animals and birds, each with an incredible attention to detail.
“The natural world has always fascinated me, the sheer diversity of species. The texture of fur, feather and skin is a never-ending source of inspiration.”
