About me
I graduated from Ravensbourne College of Art & Design with a BA Degree in Graphic Design and worked as a freelance illustrator and designer. Two years later I moved to New York and found work with clients such as Conran’s, Liz Claiborne Inc, the New York Times and the New York Transit Authority. When I returned to England I diversified, working on anything from mural painting to Photoshop editing and illustration. I’ve researched, written, designed and illustrated a series of children’s historical activity books. Working for National Trust I produced historical interpretation signs and exhibition panels. I used my calligraphy skills in Body Shop promotions and illustrated packaging for Marks and Spencer. Other clients have included The Independent, the V&A Museum, the British Museum, and most recently The Royal Mint. I work in anything from linoleum to Adobe software and on projects as diverse as still lifes and coin design - you can see more in my Behance folio.
