Born in Melbourne Australia, Potts studied Graphic Design at
The Prahran Institute of Technology. The crispness and clarity
of Pott’s work reflects over twenty years experience in graphic
design and illustration.
He has worked for a variety of graphic and media organizations as well as freelance, producing a wide range of designs from corporate logos through to fabric design and book illustration, both here and overseas.
Clients include Rip Curl Surfwear, Channel 7 (Home & Away) and Ritzenhoff Glassware, Germany.
Since moving to Northern N.S.W. in 1993 Potts has continued to
work in several genres featuring painting, graphics and sculpture. In 2002 Potts completed his Advanced Diploma of Fine Art.
His work is held in private collections in Australia, Europe, Asia and America.
