I’m a freelance illustrator / graphic designer with 20 years experience working in the publishing industry over a broad area including children’s books, editorials, brochures, logos etc. I hand draw my initial designs, then use digital manipulation to colour and adjust my images. My work is stylised, using fresh, clean, bright inlay colours & I love using typography. The way the text appears on the page, including font & layout are very important to me in the design process.

Qualifications :  BA (Hons) Graphic Design (specialising in illustration) 2:1 in 1991 @ UWE (University of the West Of England)

Honours:  Runner up in The Macmillan Children’s Book Prize 1991

Clients include:  Paperchase, Vogue, Walker Books, Sainsburys, Usborne Books, The Really Good     Card Company, CIPD (The Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development), Tango Books, Nirvana Health Spa, Woman’s Journal, Pregnancy & Aromatherapy magazines, Brader & Perryman.
