I'm a freelance illustrator specialising in the synthesis of drawing and hand made paper assemblages. What I look for in the briefs I accept is an opportunity to stretch my skill base further, I like to first think of what would be exciting to see then to find ways of making that vision possible.
I graduated with a 1st class BA Honors Degree from the Arts Institute at Bournemouth in 2007 and have been working within the industry ever since. With a strong work ethic and attention to detail, I have developed a portfolio that can accomadate a diverse range of topics and themes through a playful exploration of content.
Dorling Kindersly, DIsney, BurdaYukom, Woolley Pau, enRoute Magazine, Midwives Magazine, LighterLife Magazine, The Independent, Supply Management, The Economist, Red Active, Gestalten, ESPN, Allianz Global Investors, Colophon, YCN, The Big Issue, Computer Arts,

Aside from working on commissions and personal projects, I am also a visiting lecturer on degree level Illustration courses for major universities here in the UK, my most regular employer being the Arts University College at Bournemouth (AUCB).
I work exclusively alongside senior lecturer Sharon Beeden on three key areas of practice: Interpretation of text, Narrative, convergent technologies and professional contexts.
Lecturing offers me a valuable opportunity to put my understanding of concept anotomy and formation to use. The core aim of my work with students is to promote a guilt-free perspective of commercial practice and to emphasise the relationship between consciously held ideas and the development of an innovative working methodology.
This year I recieved D&AD recognition for my work as a visiting tutor at Westminster University.

I'm interested in projects of all kinds, whether for an immediate purpose, grand in scale or bespoke in nature, I would be more than happy to discuss them in more detail.
In 2010 OPEN Studio was launched in the heart of De Beauvoir town as a space dedicated to supporting the work of illustrators in a shared environment with hands-on print facilities. As a physical space it was intended to be a hub for fellow illustrators, educators, designers, publisher and printers, which through the engagement of members would provide support, criticism, dialogue, and fresh ambition to both creative work and entrepreneurial enterprises.
Since its founding OPEN studio has seen changes in its members (including founding members such as myself) but still remains a hub for collaborative practice and a welcoming network for curious creatives. If you would like to read more information about the studio then head on over to
