About me
I am an illustrator producing fashion, editorial and portrait artwork. I also offer a high-speed, pitch-winning visualisation service to the PR & Advertising Industry. I started my career in the fashion industry designing, developing and managing product after graduating with a BA in fashion design back in 1998. My work has taken me to the States, China & Europe and if anything, fed my hunger for travel. However, I found that I was drawing less & less and looking at spreadsheets more and more. So now I freelance. Still designing and developing collections for clients but more importantly, most of my work now is as an illustrator.

With a relatively wide target market, from fitness addicts and intense triathlon competitors, to more casual course attendees and yogis, this identity needed to show ultimate flow.
