About Me

A British illustrator, I Graduated in 1990 from Oxford Brookes University followed by several years working exclusively for two major greeting card publishers. Since then I have worked across the board illustrating children’s book, in Advertising, Editorial, Publishing and Design. It keeps me busy!

Having over 20 years experience under my belt I know the importance of working to a specific brief and meeting tight deadlines. I am a very versatile artist, being equally at home with a mouse or a brush in my hand (sometimes both!).

As you can see, my portfolio is diverse, from highly stylised people, to whimsical cutes. Most of my illustration work is character based and I can help you develop new characters or update existing ones.

I have a passion for the environment and live in an earth sheltered house. At the weekends you might spot me under the wind turbine or mowing the roof.
