Simon AllanCG ARTIST
Simon started out making promos and animations for TV and advertising in 2001 before going freelance in 2006. His work has won several Promax awards and he joined Happy Finish as a represented artist in 2010. He is very happy to work with clients on projects large and small to create their wildest imaginings using nothing but hard work, imagination and some incredibly expensive software.

Chris started his career at a renowned fashion and advertising retouch house, working on traditional scanned imagery captured by some of the world’s most highly celebrated photographers. Chris joined Happy Finish as a founding member in 2004 - his experience working on global editorials and advertising campaigns has given him the ability to tackle any type of stills or cinemagraph retouch project.
Multi-disciplined Emma started out as a graphic designer before specialising in fashion and lifestyle illustration for international brands including Barclays, Boots and Universal Records. Progressing into retouching, Emma has been a part of the Happy Finish family as a represented artist since 2009 and has loved collaborating with photographers and agencies to deliver content for clients such as Gucci, Marni, Harrods and House of Fraser.
Originally a photographer, Mihaela switched to retouching in 2012 when she joined Happy Finish as a represented artist - since then she has been learning from the best and continuously developing her skills and portfolio. Mihaela has a passion for advertising imagery and still life retouching and has worked with Nike, Omega, Arthur Woodcroft and Matthias Buchholz amongst others.
Originally from the midlands, Sophie graduated from the University of Derby with a BA hons in Commercial Photography and swapped country living for the big city lights of London soon after. She realised that she was much happier in front of a screen where the magic happens than behind a camera, and joined the Happy Finish team as a represented artist in 2012 where she has been ever since and is still loving every minute of it.
