Bret has been painting and drawing for as long as he can remember. Whether it was creating something original or reproducing film posters that had caught his eye, as a child his pencils were never far away.

Whilst attending Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design, where he was confronted by many artistic influences, he had the chance to develop his own work in an inspiring and creative environment. This led to a Higher National Diploma in Natural History Illustration.

Since leaving college he has tackled all manner of commissions, ranging from wildlife illustration and landscapes to fine art, cartoons and architectural drawings.
For a number of years, he had the opportunity to support Team Genie, a local Cystic Fibrosis charity, providing many illustrations of Dorset golf courses for their fund-raising auctions. This was something he found extremely satisfying.
