About me

I’ve been creating illustrations for a wide variety of clients for many years now. I studied illustration at Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK, with the legendary children’s book illustrator Tony Ross as my tutor. After University, I moved to live and work in Munich, working exclusively in 3D for clients such as MTV, Swatch & Cosmopolitan etc. Upon my return to the UK in 2002, I decided to get back to basics and start drawing again and re-launch my career using a totally different media. Since 2008, I’ve been working with paint and collage. My current portfolio is a mix of paint and digital paint techniques, I’m inspired by pop art, fashion illustration and the sunny positive Californian color palettes circa 1970/80′s Course leader BA Illustration, Southampton Solent University.
