I graduated in 2008 with a BA in illustration from Edinburgh College of Art, having also studied at York college, and for a semester at the Rhode Island School of Design.
My work incorporates a love of pattern and detail and is strongly influenced by the landscape and creatures of my surroundings in the Yorkshire countryside, as well as all kinds of weird and wonderful objects found in museums and antique shops.
A visit to the museum of folk art in New York inspired an ongoing interest in folk art of all kinds, and I am also influenced by 20th century illustrators such as Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious, and the american lithographed children's books of a similar era.
Now based in a house on a hill in the middle of nowhere, I am currently working on the illustrations for a children's book myself (more news to come on that soon!) as well as producing work for various exhibitions- please see the "Shows etc" for details.
Hope you enjoy having a look around.
