Dorian was born in Cambridge in 1967. He left home at sixteen and worked as a Gamekeeper in all parts of the UK. In 1987 he met his wife Bridget on Exmoor and they married in 1992 after he had complete a 3 year course in wildlife conservation at Sparsholt Agricultural college. It was during the long lectures associated with full time education that Dorian’s ability to draw cartoons was discovered.
In 1995 Dorian decided to capitalise on his talent and set up a cartooning business called Amosart, in Polperro, Cornwall. The business was successful and in no time at all ‘life became far too easy’ so, in 1998 and on a whim, Bridget and Dorian decided to immigrate to the Canadian wilderness for a bit of adventure. They now live with their 2-year-old son, Jack Julian and trusty dog Boris, in a cabin in the forest outside Dawson City, Yukon Territory.
