I have an OND, HND and BA(Hons) all in the arts. As soon as I left university I started work for an advertising agency learning the ins and outs of graphic design. Then to a printers as studio manager then moving on to a newspaper as the head of a design team. After that moving on from the busy world of newspapers I joined a greeting card company as a product developer and artist. This is where I found my love for illustration again after a while I went freelance into illustration and I am loving it still 14 years on.
I enjoy illustrating Children's books. I find them funny and you can add slight adult humour too the illustrations, this hopefully appeals to the adult purchaser. There is nothing more warming than seeing people enjoying and laughing at a published book you have illustrated.
Nature and people are my biggest influence in my work and I try to get as much character and expression into each piece of work possible.
