I am an artist and illustrator living and working in London, UK. I graduated from Kent Institute of Art and Design in 1994 with a Degree in Illustration. Since then I’ve worked primarily in graphic design, but more recently have concentrated more on pursuing my passion for art. I have exhibited in solo and group shows from London to Grimsby, South Africa to Berlin. I currently have a studio at Inky Cuttlefish, a printmaking collective in Walthamstow, East London and regularly participate in the annual E17 Art Trail.

I specialise mainly in mark-making. Pencil on paper, acrylic on wood and linocut prints; the drawn image – expressed by a mark, smudge, messy mistake or just a pure pencil line – excites me. I’m fascinated by visual storytelling, drawing a narrative, venturing into fairytale, make-believe, the unknown or just simple day-dreaming.

Over the last few years I’ve started developing a visual storyline around Catboy: the boy with the cat shadow. It’s inspired by my mischievous cat Harrison and my playful nephew Austin. My own childhood has provided a more general theme to my work… I was a cheeky and mischievous young boy, who dreamt of being an astronaut and building his own robot. I liked to go for adventures on long summer days, climb trees, skim stones and cycle fast down country lanes. I want to portray this sense of youth, adventure and discovery in my work. Read Less
