I've worked as a freelance illustrator since the mid 1990s.

I love the challenge of answering a brief and finding a clear, clever, visual solution whether it's for a complex idea or text or just to provide an appropriate beautiful image.

I've been a visiting tutor at many UK Art Colleges and specialise in Professional Practice.

Originally from the North of Scotland, where I grew up on a tomato farm, I lived in London for twenty five years and now live in rural Northumberland.
