Introduction I am a freelance illustrator based in London. Im currently working on my first set of children's picture books... It's been a slow process but its coming together now. I'l keep this thing updated with my progress. More about myself.... Im grounded in the traditional styles of Illustration and as such i often make use of printmaking, fabric Collage, stitch, and mixed media which helps give a soft almost childlike feel to my subject matter which is more often than not quite dark.
