I grew up in Lancashire and when I was nine my family moved to Yorkshire where I spent most of my childhood drawing and painting. During my collage years I became a fan of artists like David Cutter, Ian Pollock and Edward Hopper. I left with an HND in Graphic design and. After working in design for the next few years I felt like a change and pursued illustration which I have always had a passion for so in 1996 I took the plunge and started freelance . For the first 5 years I painted all my work on canvass paper and as you can imagine, this was rather time consuming. It was in 2001 that I started to familiarise myself with technology and executed my artwork using a Wacom tablet and Corel Painter. Since then I have reinvented my style about 5 or 6 times. It was in 2009 that I decided to create a sustainable style with a little more longevity. My past clients include: BBC, TUC, Reader's Digest, Financial Times, Walker books, The Guardian, The Economist, Haymarket, conde nast, TES and Experian, Informa Plc, New York Times, Honda, Wall Street Journal.
