Experienced illustrator, enjoying fruitful relationships with many varied clients, ranging from Editorial through to Advertising. No project is too big or small and I relish the challenge of an open brief.

Born in Warrington, I grew up in North Wales, completing an Art Foundation course at Coleg Menai, Bangor, then went on to study illustration at Brighton. I feel privileged to have worked in the illustration world ever since. I now work for a broad range of international clients from my studio based in the North West of England. Until recently I also worked as a part time lecturer on the illustration degree courses at UCLAN and Coleg Menai. After a very rewarding few years of teaching I decided to have a break from education to concentrate solely on freelance work. As well as my family and work, there are many things in this world that make me smile - I'm a fan of old Volkswagens, cacti, giant bugs, tin toys, space ephemera, pasta, snorkeling, Apple Mac Kit, Jack Nicholson, running, movies, paint, sea critters, designer vinyl, holidays, bears, and of course - coffee.

Very happy to work with either tight art direction where a visual theme has already been defined, or with creative freedom where I can provide my own concepts, allowing the imagination to wander into the realms of the unknown. In any creative field I'm more than happy to work speedily with the client on their project where a bold, unique visual solution is required. When crafting the images, I tend to use a combination of acrylic paint, ink, collage, photoshop and illustrator to create the finished artwork – with no set approach as to which medium leads the process. Sometimes paint dominates, sometimes it’s the Mac. Generally a sketchbook, a layout pad and a set of drawings guide the way. Read Less
