About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Art Assistant on a children's TV show
Location Coventry, East Midlands, United Kingdom
Introduction I graduated from Loughborough University with a BA in Illustration in 2004. Since then I have worked in animation, television, illustration, education and marketing in a variety of creative roles. I'm currently based in Coventry employed as a freelance illustrator. My illustration style is clean and versatile and has been used in a variety of mediums from children's art shows to podcasts. I combine Photoshop with pencil and ink sketches, photography and found textures to suit the nature of the commission. I am inspired by my love of travel and you can often find textures and patterns collected from around the world in my work.
