Biography: I have been illustrating professionally since 1993- serving publishers, designers and advertisers throughout the world.

My images have complemented the work of Muriel Spark, Peter Carey, Gil Scott-Heron, Iain Banks and even the first newspaper publication of Irvine Welsh's
Trainspotting.

Techniques: My work is an on-going investigation of mixed media image-making. My illustrations combine elements of collage, painting, photography and digital techniques. I'm able to create original photography, tailored to specific purposes, or to handle researched / supplied imagery. I am also exploring creative opportunities made possible by screen-based platforms.

Publishing: Illustrating book covers has been a long standing interest and, now, I can say that I've supplied most major publishers in the UK, US and throughout the world. All that experience, means that I can absorb a text and translate it effectively into an arresting and relevant cover.

Editorial: I've created covers and feature illustrations for many newspapers and magazines. I've also been a weekly contributor to prominent national newspapers- either devising and illustrating my own topical satires or by partnering top columnists.

Exposure: I am represented by agents in New York, London and elsewhere. My work has appeared in many illustration annuals and you can follow me on social media. I still believe, though, in the benefits of meeting personally with portfolios to discuss ideas. So, you're welcome to enquire about an appointment or any other issue.

I am an experienced illustrator and educator with an open minded and forward thinking approach to image-making. I can make a creative contribution to project ideas as well as create high quality imagery.
