I originally studied Illustration and Animation at Edinburgh College of Art, where I gained a B.A. Honours and then later an M.A. in Animation. I then went on to work in the T.V games and animation industry, working on a variety of projects for a few years.
I love drawing and in 2000 I began freelancing as an illustrator and never looked back. Over the years I have built up a variety of clients, working in publishing, editorial, advertising, as well as designing characters for television and working on iPad and iPhone book apps.
To date I have fully Illustrated over 50 books. My clients include: Usbourne books, Puffin books, Ink Robin, Oxford University Press, Children’s Museum Bethnal green, Woodmansterne, Channel 4, Gulf Shore Life magazine, English Heritage, Taylor’s Port, Cambridge University Press, National Trust, BBC, The Telegraph, Zigguart brands, Garden’s World magazine, Waitrose magazine, Computer Active, Danone yoghurt, Bee books, Ask magazine, WFI metropolis, Hueber, Airside, CTA, Cricket magazine, Tandem, White wolves, Ink Tank, Steradent, Unit 9, Twixels, Travel goods association, Island bakery company and E4. My portfolio also includes interactive work for the V&A and the Science museums in London.
Lately I've been working on a number of projects from illustrating books and magazine articles to illustration for packaging and an animation for a new worldwide free wifi. I recently have began illustrating two regular columns for The Telegraph and Gulf Shore Life magazine in the USA and alongside my artwork, I lecture one day a week in the animation department at Hertfordshire University, teaching animation skills and life drawing.
