About

I am an artist and illustrator based in Greater London, UK. I have an MA in Children’s Book Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art. I am married with two wonderful boys who provide lots of inspiration and are invaluable critics!

 

I am regularly out and about sketching, you can often find me on trains, in coffee shops and any other places where I find interesting people. I am particularly fascinated by the uniqueness of people and animals. These observations and sketches are what inspire me to create new characters and ideas for illustrations.

 

In my work I use a wide range of media (digital, collage, monoprint) but I especially enjoy the more traditional line and wash. More recently I have been branching out into larger paintings with oil on canvas, which you can find in my Etsy shop.

 

I like to draw and paint from observation and create characters with an element of humour that people can relate to.
