I am a freelance illustrator working from my studio in Sheffield. Families, everyday life and the great outdoors inspire me.
To create my illustrations, I enjoy using a dip pen and ink, watercolour and acrylic paint as well as the magic of photoshop. My secret weapon is a lightbox, which I have been using since my university days, where I studied animation as well as illustration. My illustration style is bright, colourful and appeals to both children and adults. I love colour, texture and wobbly lines!
I have produced illustration and typography for allsorts: children’s books, book jackets, advertising, magazines, badges, weddings and websites. Clients have included the British Council, CAFOD, Granta, Great Ormand Street Hospital, HarperCollins, Pan Macmillan, Summersdale publishing and the Tree Charter.
I really enjoy working collaboratively and creating a visual response to an idea, so please get in touch if you have a project you’d like illustrated.
