About me
I’m a freelance illustrator based in London with over 10 years experience. I specialise in realistic illustrations of buildings, people and objects. I work in both watercolour, pen and colouring pencil. Clients include The Telegraph, MINI, New Balance, BBC, Radio Times, Albam clothing, Liberty London, Creative Review, National Trust, Cawston Press. I like to think I’m easy to work with, a perfectionist, and very professional. I probably talk too much about my dog.

  • Mayo Clinic x Oxford University Clinic, London
    Mayo Clinic x Oxford University Clinic, LondonI was commissioned to illustrate the website of the partnership clinic in London’s Fitzrovia. I created illustrations that were warm and welcoming, yet professional and authoritative, using key colours from the brand guidelines. A real joy to work on with Effection studio.
  • New Balance 'Three Peaks Challenge' Map
    New Balance 'Three Peaks Challenge' MapTo celebrate the Three Peaks Challenge, New Balance UK released three new shoes, one pair for each peak. I was commissioned by Canoe Studio to create a map of the challenge, illustrating the route, the shoes, and each mountain. The map was then popped inside the box of each pair of the limited edition trainers. A bit of a dream job, I must say.
  • London Coffee Guides
    London Coffee GuidesI was asked to create five illustrations of coffee brewing techniques, to feature in the London Coffee Guides. They have been rolled out in each year's publication since 2013.
  • Godfrey London Map
    Godfrey London MapOne of my favourite places in London is Hampstead Heath. There is no place I’d rather be on a sunny day than swimming in the Ladies Pond. So I was delighted when the excellent Camber-Group design studio commissioned me to create a map of Hampstead Heath and the surrounding areas for property developers, Godfrey London.
