I'm a London based illustrator/animator, originally from Kingswinford in the West Midlands. Since graduating with a BA Hons degree in illustration from Portsmouth in 95 my career has comprised image making, graphic design, animation and art direction including a 7 year stint as Lead designer at Abbey Road Studios. Over the last ten years the illustration has taken centre stage and I've worked on numerous commissions with a wide variety of clients in advertising, book covers and editorial work for international newspapers and magazines. My versatile style is a contemporary fusion of traditional and new techniques mixing hand crafted elements with digital collage and lots of colour. I love what I do and I hope that comes through in the work. Enjoy.
