Poole was born in London in 1963 and now lives and works in Hastings, East Sussex. He was educated at Croydon College of Art, Chelsea College of Art & Design, Sussex College, and Brighton University Fine Art Contemporary Practice degree.
His career spans photography, interior and lighting design, product design, graphics, painting and sculpture - often blurring the parameters of these different disciplines. As well as developing designs by hand, Poole utilises the latest in 2D and 3D Computer-Aided Design software. He is also an accomplished model maker, regarding scale models as a crucial phase in prototype and ideas development.
Poole often uses 'found' objects in his sculptures, including everyday products such as postage stamps, toy cars and vintage film cameras - items that evoke a certain nostalgia. Each sculpture is unique, featuring a mixture of unusual colourful and charming artefacts. The qualities that make his sculptures particularly distinctive and captivating are his witty comments on familiar objects expressed in sophisticated colour compositions.
