Welcome to my website

I knew a long time ago when I was growing up in Leicester that I wanted to earn my living drawing. Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art I have been working freelance in London on animated films, commercials and illustration work.

Recently I've been concentrating on developing picture book ideas and my debut author/illustrated picture book Hiding Heidi was published in July 2016 by Simon and Schuster.

I explore a variety of subject matter through self-initiated and commercial work, deriving inspiration from new places, brilliant people, bold patterns, structures and subtle details in everyday life.

All the projects I work on have a paper based handmade origin.  I like to draw with children's blow pens, cutting stencils and experimenting with printing techniques. I find this playful approach and embracing collaboration brings about fresh ways to visualise ideas.
