With an artistic granny, father and uncle, and after a childhood of endless doodling, it seemed inevitable that I would seek a career as an illustrator.


After receiving my BA Honours in Graphic Design at Nottingham Trent University, I found my big break creating editorial illustrations for a number of UK magazines.

Since then, I have worked with top publishers such as Bloomsbury, Orchard Books, Egmont and Scholastic.


I regularly go on drawing adventures around the world, seeking inspiration from places near and far - most recently Hong Kong, New York and Tanzania have had me furiously sketching!


When I am not busy illustrating quirky little characters I love to work on large paintings for exhibitions and the fashion/textiles market. If you are interested in seeing those you can visit my other website here.
