I am an illustrator based in the North East of England. I work with UK and international clients, creating illustrations for editorial, publishing, advertising and more.
I have been working as an illustrator since graduating from the University of the West of England with a First class honours degree in Illustration in 2008. I find inspiration in vast collections, large cities, literature and music. I am also influenced by mid-century modern design and have an interest in old paper-based ephemera.
My work combines digital and handmade elements. Projects begin with pencil drawings and are completed using Photoshop in a distinctive style. My work is ideas-led, approaching each brief with an open mind and focusing on conveying concepts and messages with a striking aesthetic.
