My illustrations are based on sensitive drawing, with strong colours and texture. The architecture illustrations are all about atmosphere and detail, making the viewer feel immersed in the scene. I use a Wacom Cintiq with Photoshop and textured brushes, especially a rough pastel or messy ink roller. It's exciting to see how they behave together, and it keeps the drawings lively and fresh.
My training is BA(Hons) degree in Fine Art, and a post graduate certificate from the Bristol Animation Course.
From 2004 I worked in publishing, first at Dorling Kindersley and then Carlton Books. I was a designer in children’s reference, making a very wide range of books. By 2015 I felt it was the right time to make a change of career, and use my skills in illustration and animation.
In 2019 I worked with Factory Create as a background artist on ‘Mimi and the Mountain Dragon’ (BBC). It was very fulfilling to work as an artist and use my training in animation. It was also great to work within a very talented team.
