I 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.


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:

The Saturday and Sunday Telegraph, Usbourne books, Puffin books, Gulf Shore Life magazine, Ink Robin, Oxford University Press, Children’s Museum Bethnal green, Woodmansterne, Channel 4, 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 illustrations for an animation for The V&A’s Museum of Childhood.

I recently have began illustrating two regular columns for The Telegraph newspaper and Gulf Shore Life magazine in Florida USA.
