About me
I'm an illustrator specialising in digital imagery for media and broadcasting clients. Much of my work has been for BBC Radio, where I have created dozens of eye-catching illustrations for iPlayer, iTunes, social media, and bbc.co.uk. I'm also a picturebook author and illustrator, and my debut children's book will be published in the Autumn by Tate Publishing. On top of that I'm an experienced digital producer and project manager! I work in Abobe Illustrator and Photoshop, as well as doing lots by hand - I love to integrate printmaking and other traditional techniques into my work. I can produce simple animations and gifs, edit video, and am pretty good at storyboarding, having previously been a digital video producer, and studying storyboarding at UAL. Having worked as a digital producer for 10 years means that my knowledge of what works online is excellent.

    Sapiens cover - personal projectI adore this book, and it's been very influential in my work as a picturebook author and illustrator. I decided to give it a new cover of my design, using monoprinting techniques.

  • Podcast image for the BBC Any Questions Any Answers podcast
    Podcast image for the BBC Any Questions Any Answers podcastMy new image for the BBC Any Questions Any Answers podcast, now live on Spotify, iTunes and other podcast platforms. It was a bit of a tough brief, I didn't want to do anything obvious and tried instead to think conceptually and visually about different sides of the argument, debate, and forms that mirrored/answered/polarised one another. I also definitely had the more geometric wood engravings of Ravilious and Edward Bawden in mind. I'm pleased with how the bright orange glows like a berry on S
  • BBC Radio 4 The Food Programme branding, programme and podcast images
    BBC Radio 4 The Food Programme branding, programme and podcast imagesThe Food Programme needed to update their podcast image, which appears on iTunes and iPlayer, and needed some nice bold programme images too. The podcast identity needed to have global appeal, standout among other podcasts on iTunes, and express the content of the programme with an element of surprise. Using a careful composition of universally recognisable food I think these goals were achieved. I worked closely with the programme team, who loved the outcome, and the image has won me lots of other podcast design work at the BBC.
