I live and work from my studio, based on the edge of a large wood somewhere in Lincolnshire, England. It's nice and quiet here which gives me plenty of time to pursue my main passion in life, which is making pictures! I share the studio with my partner, who is a Design Teacher and Silversmith.

A professional illustrator with 15 years international experience, I predominantly work and specialise in Children's illustration, sequential imagery, storyboarding and character design. I have illustrated over 40 books for commissioners such as Random House, Usborne, Templar Publishing, Oxford University Press, Macmillan and Barefoot Books.

Other areas of expertise include packaging design and Pop-Up illustration. Creating visual solutions for clients such as Marks and Spencer and Cadbury.

My illustrations are painted in acrylics or made digitally.
