I'm a Birmingham based illustrator who has been freelance since graduating from the University of Wolverhampton in 2002.
My style is a blend of painting, drawing, photography, found objects and printmaking that are fused together using Photoshop. This distinctive style has attracted work from a host of worldwide clients in areas such as advertising, book covers, design and editorial.

Although it sounds like a cliché; illustration is a genuine obsession of mine, I feel incredibly privileged to have worked in this industry for nearly ten years. I take each commission no matter how big or small and try to create something unique and fitting for that client and their audience.
