Lloyd’s artwork evokes the era of Vintage Railway poster design. Based in Millom, Cumbria he has the perfect opportunity to capture the beauty of The Lake District with his digital artwork .
‘I moved here 2008 from Teesside, totally changed my career from Restauranteur to Picture Framer, and this afforded me the time to start my art career again.
"My software of choice is Affinity Designer by Serif that I run on my Macbook. I try to work from good photographic references and build up layers within my software. I create the shapes and use the colour tones from the photo, I rely heavily on the colour picker of the software as I am colourblind".
His style has been influenced by the artists who were famous for creating the travel posters for the the tourist locations within the UK, The Lake District and Coastal locations.
He has work under license at Mockingbird Press in Bristol, including scenes at Watchet, Dunster and Bristol.
At present Lloyd has work in retail outlets in Windermere, Ulverston, Dalton and his own shop in Millom.
Looking to the future, Lloyd will continue to grow his portfolio as he has more local and national scenes to capture as well as the demand for commissions.
