About me

I’m a Suffolk (UK) based award winning illustrator.

After working as a graphic designer for over 15 years I decided I wanted to explore my love of illustration further. I graduated from an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art in 2017, which I thoroughly loved. Not only did it make me start drawing from life again, it took me away from the computer and back into the print room. I really enjoy the experimental process and often end up using textures from this stage in final artwork, and then using my digital skills to layer and compose.
