Ben from Ryde on the Isle of Wight is self-taught, but has drawn from a young age with an instant love for historical art, and more specifically, historical military art. With a foundational love of character, atmosphere and adventure he seeks the escapist immersion provided by a historical or fantasy context. After a hiatus of many years Ben has returned to art within the last four years and now has regular international sales and commissions including art for websites, books and other promotions.
Ben mainly works in Acrylic paint, acrylic ink, Pen and ink, dip-pen and ink and is looking to expand more with Artisan Oils.
