...with over twenty years industry experience in design and more recently as a freelance illustrator. I still work for clients who have been there from the start, which I put down to a combination of passion for my job and from taking an active interest in their business. This is no more apparent than for those clients who operate in the bar and drinks industry. I often spend any valuable downtime proactively generating new ideas, artwork and proposals without a brief.

To develop my illustration skills, I took a leap of faith in 2009 in setting up alone and undertaking an MA. Whilst this framework provided a structure for learning, my greatest achievement was the development of my self critical appraisal. My illustration work developed into a signature style deep rooted in traditional engraving, well thought through and with depth of layered meaning.

Although I generally work alone, being independent allows me to collaborate alongside creatives with complimentary skill sets. For Anya Hindmarch’s London Fashion Week set I worked with the set designers to illustrate a life size, two storey revolving townhouse, populated with pop-up book style characters. Elsewhere I have worked in conjunction with product designers and motion graphics animators.

Having a broad range of technical abilities from my design background I’m capable of single handedly managing large complex jobs from start to finish eg. book projects from art direction, design and typesetting through to print management. Having an interest in historical and traditional craftsmanship and methods has also lead to me producing sensitive large format artwork displays for museum and exhibition spaces.

Driven by a strong work ethic, I most enjoy working with clients who are equally passionate about their briefs, constantly pushing me to perform to the best of my ability. I’m looking to work with more of the same.
