I am an illustrator and designer from the South West of England.
My work is influenced by my time spent as a graphic designer working on a broad range of projects, specialising in pre-school gift and activity led stationery.
You can view my previous design and illustration work in the sidebar pages, this included Zany Zoo for WHSmith, Little Bugs for Sainsburys and RetroMetric for Paperchase. I now work with a broad variety of major book publishers from all around the world. Visit my online shop to view my products including mugs, greeting cards, apparel and gifts.
