Welcome to my illustration website!
I'm a freelance artist and illustrator living in Shropshire. I take commissions public and private, and work towards exhibitions, illustration and book-art fairs and my Etsy shop. I like to draw from life so you might find me perched somewhere around the county making illustrated maps.
I studied Fine Art (painting) at WSCAD now you might know it as UCA, graduating in '88 and have worked as an artist, at first as a painter and then increasingly in illustration.
I experiment with a range of media but mainly use dip-pen and ink and digital media.
Having completed a PCGE in Further Education alongside my illustration, I teach workshops for adults and give talks on my illustration.
