In his latest work Neil explores a personal 'Wanderlust' for travel and new cultural experiences combined with exploration into the way in which travel has become embedded in the collective national consciousness.

His practice in centred on digital craft which combines both digital and hand processes, the output of which is presented as digital one-off artworks.
