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 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 have been illustrating for the past 16 years, working in publishing, editorial, advertising, as well as designing characters for television and working on iPad and iPhone book apps.

I started my career producing illustrations for The Scotsman newspaper, but then swiftly moved into animation where I worked as an director on a number of television commercials and TV shows. I was then commissioned by Channel 4 to make an animated short 'Bowled Over' and this lead to regular character design work from animation studios around London.

To date I have fully Illustrated over 40 books. Some of my clients include: Usbourne books, Puffin books, Ink Robin, Oxford University Press, Channel 4, BBC, Telegraph, Zigguart brands, Island bakery company and E4. My portfolio also includes interactive work for the V&A and the Science museums in London.

I recently have completed a series of illustrations for the weekend Telegraph and images for the National Trust.
