CHILDREN’S
ILLUSTRATION

Much of my work focuses on both writing and illustrating for children. I  currently have a number of story ideas in development.
All work is hand drawn using manual mixed media and digital techniques.


LANDSCAPE, SEA & TREES



The environment
A portion of my work has been concerned with a  sense of place through illustration; albeit a strange otherworldly place. It stems from spending time in Wales and a love for the sea, storms, squall and weather.


CHARACTERS


Following a first degree in theatre design I have nurtured a life-long interest in character.
My work looks at quirks of human nature, observation and caricature.
